Is taxidermy toxic?
Finished pieces are not toxic. The chemicals I use are safe and effective, and no ill effects to your health will come from regularly touching and handling your piece. However, the dirt and oils from your hands can adversely effect your piece if accumulated over time, and I do not recommend licking, biting, or consuming parts or pieces. Antique and vintage pieces may be treated chemicals no longer in use today, so they should be handled with care.
