Some preserve them in alcohol/ethanol.

I myself buried my first ever emperor, and since threw any others away at the top of the garden or in the recycling bin.

I don't know for sure myself as I've never done it. But I think it has to be 70% ethanol or something..

Try having a quick search in google and see what comes up.

i still have lots of them. hairspray them all over and that will preserve them. you might want to remove some innards from larger ones but i never had a problem when i dont gut them even with some of my spinifers.
bit gross but they are on my desk with a load of ammo shells and a dried up green anole... im not weird at all, honest!

im sorry but have no idea as was about ten years ago and my dad has died since so cant ask lol however i would probably guess that it was some kind of clear wood varnishas he used to do a lot of wood work and probably thought "...... i wonder if that would work " lol ill have to ask my brother to find it and put a pic up its kinda in a box frame i think

hair spray does the same as the varnish except a thinner layer and it gets pretty much everywhere. i have preserved scorpions that have been dead for months before, its only the exoskeleton your preserving, though that will SERIOUSLY stink by now.

I can't see how soaking in hairspray works does is kinda pickle it or something, I think a quick coat of varnish all over would have been easier and quicker lol worked for my Dads
