Sculpting in Taxidermy

On many levels, sculpting is a natural part of taxidermy.The forms on which taxidermists glue their skins begin as skeletal armatures and then sculpted in clay by very skilled sculptors, usually with a strong taxidermy background. They are later molded in fiberglass to which urethane foam can be injected, producing highly accurate foam forms. Some are more accurate than others but through the last two decades there have been huge advances in taxidermy forms production and quality. For most practicing taxidermist, sculpting plays a lessor role than with the sculptor, but no less important to the finished product. The ability to look at a subject and interpret bone and muscle structures and how they relate to one another can be the difference between beginner and skilled professional quality work.
