Members attended an excellent day hosted by long time Guild member and highly respected taxidermist Mike Gadd. Mike started the practical demonstration on small mammal taxidermy by explaining the importance of getting to know the anatomy of the specimen you are about to work on
"Instead of rushing straight in and skinning the specimen take the time to see how it moves naturally" Mike explained The Squirrel had suffered internal injuries as a result of a RTA. So Mike explained how he had used acetone and alcohol to kill any bacteria and prevent the skin from slipping around its belly area. This had worked extremely well and there was no sign of hair loss. Mike then proceeded to skin the squirrel after a short debate on the various types of incision that would work on such small specimens and the pro's and con's of each option, a straight forward belly incision was opted for on this occasion.
The benefits of using a knife as opposed to a scalpel were also discussed. Removal of the skin commenced and in no time at all Mike had skinned right to the tips of the toes and had a neat skin ready to do some fine paring of the ears, eyelids and lips before placing it into the tan solution. After lunch Mick began to create a mannequin for the squirrel useing woodwool.

At times he was so fast at binding it was a blur. In no time at all a traditional mannequin was completed ,an artificial head replaced the badly damaged origional and the eyes were set into place
Mike now turned his attention back to the skin and demonstrated fleshing to reduce shrinkage when drying . The day was drawn to an end with Mike demonstrating how he fine tunes the skin and uses good referance to re-create an exceptionally lifelike squirrel
