Item details

My male Burmese Python, Bo (pictured above) sheds. A lot. He's grown from a youngster that would fit in my hand to a 10' long adult. Being a resourceful and crafty person, I hate to throw away anything as cool as shed snake skin.

Bo is very pampered and well fed, and is quite fine with hisr shed being used to fund his rodent habit!

I've used it to make laminated bags, jewelry, and decoupage. There are many other ways to utilize this beautiful natural material! It's great for adding texture to paper crafts and collage, can be inked to make prints, and is widely used in nail art. It would make a great addition to a student's biology science project, and is considered a powerful symbol of rebirth in the Wiccan and Pagan traditions. Last but not least, hermit crabs love to eat it!

Shed reptile skin is very delicate, like thin paper. It must be carefully handled when crafting, and should be glued to a sturdier support surface and sealed with a material like resin or Diamond Glaze (my favorite for jewelry making). If you want to re-shape it, moisten it with water from a fine mist spray bottle first, gently manipulate it into shape, and let it dry in place before using.

You get 1/2 oz. in this package, approximately enough to cover an 11" x 8 1/2" surface. I will make every effort to include a variety of textures, including belly scales. If you prefer to receive only top pieces or those with a smaller or larger pattern, please let me know and I'll put together a collection just for you.
