Faux-Taxidermy Fun

Seriously, how cool is the word “faux-taxidermy”?   I just love how something that I personally find so creepy can be turned into something, well, awesome!

Over this last week I’ve been busy working on the coolest faux-taxidermy project – Rhinka the Rhino by Pepika Designs and it has been seriously so much fun to watch it come together.

I’ve boxed this one up and he’s ready to charge off (see what I did there) to his new home in Amsterdam.

If you want to make one for yourself, you absolutely can.  Just head over to the Pepika website and you can pick up any of her fabulous designs in her store.

Meanwhile, this isn’t the first Pepika design I’ve made.  Remember Johnny the Monkey from this time last year?
