Custom Faux Taxidermy Dik-Dik

Dik-diks are tiny antelope, with a proboscis nose and tiny little horns, and an adorable mohawk. My taxidermy version is approximately life size.  The horns are cast from resin, the eyes are glass, and the plaque is made from ply offcuts.

 

Your custom made faux taxidermy dik-dik will be made to match your preferred colour and style. Please read below for a link to the process and what to expect.

 

Dimensions are 290mm H x 135mm W x 200mm D

 

More about my  Faux Taxidermy Dik-dik Wall Mounts:

All my animals are mounted on a wooden plaque with a keyhole type hanger set into the back. All you need is a hook, screw, or nail that is suitable for your wall, to hang it on.

 

They are made from high quality upholstery fabric scraps and swatch books, and most of my fabrics have been saved from waste. I use a variety of trims and hardware when needed, to support any fragile edges. For some styles, I will fray the edges on purpose.

 

I use a polyurethane foam form and build off  that. The ears are sewn, The eyes are glass or resin. I make the mane and forelock  by unravelling fabrics to make a fringe, or by using yarn. They are finished with scotch guard.

 

All my beasts are unique – I never make two the same.

 

Please note – these are not a toy.

 

IMPORTANT – Please read this page before ordering a custom faux taxidermy dik-dik wall mount – it explains my policies and terms for custom work.

 

Customising your Faux Taxidermy Dik-dik:

 

I love adding little details that bring personality to these textile taxidermy creatures. And since they are fantasy creatures, we can do what we like – different coloured eyes, or eyes from another animal.

 

You can choose any style that fits with your aesthetic. For example, floral, steampunk, bling, ethnic, rustic etc, and any colour combination.

 

I can also use fabrics left over from your home renovation so that they match your décor perfectly. Or perhaps you have a scrap of fabric that is sentimental that you don’t want to keep in a box unseen? This is the perfect way to display that.

 

Pricing

The price shown is a base price. Any extra additions such a custom features, trims or mouldings may add extra to the final cost. You will be made aware of this before production begins.

 

All the fabrics I use are unused, but have been recycled so the cost is minimal. Not only does this mean that these fabrics do not end up in landfill, it also makes these creatures more affordable to make in a range of very high quality fabrics.
