The skull of a raccoon is small approximately 4 inches from nose to the back of the head. I used a gold and brown cabochon as a focal bead and matched some seed beads to the colors. I tried to echo the curves and lines of the skull in the placement of the beads. They are attached one at a time using straight pins and tweezers and glue. this raccoon does have some dental problems but is very good looking anyway. Local delivery is included in the price. Out of town shipping is an additional cost.
