This three hour workshop covers the techniques of preserving and mounting scorpions. Heterometrus laoticus to be exact. That’s right, these guys are actually big enough to wire and stuff! (7 inches including tail) so we can classify this as a perfect marriage between arthropod mounting and taxidermy. We will be using an epoxy resin clay for extra resilience.
Each participant will go home with their very own scorp, what happens after that is between you and your maker, framed mount, bell jar baby, the sky’s the limit! The specimen you receive has been made flexible and soft, additional dry specimens will be available for purchase, don’t worry… we will cover all the things you need to know to get them ready for mounting in the comfort of your own home, or buy a ready-made kit for that budding entomologist you might have in mind!
