Description

Cotton batting used for snow in several dioramas had yellowed significantly over the years. Museum artist Joianne Bittle Knight takes us inside the lynx diorama where the entire foreground was replaced. To achieve a realistic windblown appearance, the team used polyester batting covered with layers of ceramic-fiber blanket, topped with chopped polyethylene foam and a sprinkling of glass flakes to emulate freshly fallen snow.

The restored Hall of North American Mammals reopened October 2012.
