I thought today I might show you some more feltidermy. I just added this guy to my shop this week.
Mounted Fawn Fletidermy. I love that he looks slightly surpised and confused, yet happy to be there. After all he is a feltidermy, he doesn’t know that he represents a dead animal. He does know that he is a whole lot cuter than a dead animal.
Feltidermy came about by a strange request from a music video producer. I was contacted and asked if I could make a mounted moose head that could be puppeted from behind to lip sync to music. While I actually thought it was not such a weird request, but the fact that it would need to be in Los Angeles, CA 4 days from then was way out there too me. I hadn’t even thought about the mechanics of the whole thing…A pattern would have to be developed, mounting would need figuring out…Let alone the whole puppetry aspect. I decided I had to try to make one, not a puppet version, just mounted. I loved the idea of a mounted felt stuffed animal head!
Here is what I came up with after 2 weeks of work.
Mounted Deer Feltidermy! I am happy to say that this one now has a new home. Don’t worry,you can find more in my shop. There is even a Feltidermy section to make it easier for you to find them. Right now you can find a mounted buck, a lavender jackalope and the mounted fawn.
Yes, I also do custom pieces if you are interested. This is the White Rabbit Mounted Feltidermy that I just made for a customer in the past week.
She loved the feltidermy and Powder the White Bunny in my shop. Mix that together with a fascination with Alice in Wonderland and there you go… a brilliant idea! I was so happy to be able to bring this idea to life for her!
