Smashing 80 grit sandpaper into wet leather really turns out nicely in the end!



Texture



She’s mounted in the classic death pose, with the slightest tilt to her skull. The end result is a nice bit of visual depth with the far side of her skull.

The wet molded pockets are really durable, and are sewed in before the bag is lined so the backside of the stitches are hidden.







The Royal Tyrrell Museum hosted FPCS in 2013. It was a great event- we even got to hitch out to Dinosaur Provincial Park.
