Catastrophes are nobody’s friend, and it certainly is not a taxidermist’s friend as well. When disasters occur, it can easily devastate taxidermy products.
Despite the modernization of the taxidermy process, there are still some factors that can genuinely influence the decay of taxidermy products, which includes dirty water.
This is the reason why taxidermist put a lot of effort into their work space, as well as in the museums or shops where they display their works.
The work space should be sturdy and well-built. It has to be constantly kept clean, and it has to be far from areas that are prone to disrupt the taxidermy process.
With so much at stake in choosing the perfect place to set up a taxidermy shop, a friend of mine hired experts to inspect every nook and cranny of the shop he has now. He hired roofers to make sure his roof is flawless and free from easy wear and tear of the unforgiving weather; he hired designers to make sure that his shop is set up in the most efficient and effective way, as well as in a way that would not result in any damages and accidents to the chemicals and equipment in the shop; of course, he also hired a commercial Anniston plumber to check on the plumbing system of the shop, to make sure that no leaks and other plumbing problems would ever occur, especially since dirty water is one of the major enemies of taxidermy products.
There is a lot to taxidermy beyond just the art itself, and this discussion on the care and caution on taxidermy is something that other enthusiasts should consider, especially if one is also planning on setting up shop. Taxidermist are known to have passion for every animal that they “freeze” to life and the process is not as simple as anybody would think. This is why investing in the shop may not seem like a big deal, but in truth, it actually is.
If you do not have enough dedication to make sure that your shop is in its best condition, then you might not have enough passion for the craft. If that is the case, then it won’t be too late for you to give up on taxidermy. Taxidermist can’t be half-hearted when it comes to this craft because a little mishap can go a long way in terms of the level of disaster that could occur.
