I recently acquired a small Walrus skull and tusks. The whole thing is about 18 inches tall the the skull has been cut off about 3 inches behind the nose (for lack of a better description). I would like to hang it on the wall and I am wondering how you go about attaching the skull to a piece of wood or metal to hang on the wall?
I am thinking that if I pick a good thick spot on the skull I can drill a couple of reasonable size holes and just epoxy in a couple of metal studs and then use them to attach to the backing plate of my choice?? Is there a special epoxy used on skulls? Am I thinking along the correct lines??
I can post some photos of the skull if it would help.
Oh and just so this does not go down that road, the ivory is legal, looked into that prior to purchasing the skull.
On another note I noticed that one of the tusks is slightly loose, if it ever falls out is there an epoxy or glue that should be used for repairing that problem?
