I decided on soaking them in acetone. I put a very small slit on each side of the abdomen and when I took them out to dry, I used an electric oven on its lowest setting. The acetone evaporated so quickly that it left the body as a gas and kept the bodies "puffed up" so they look like they did when alive. So many true scorpions are dried and look so compressed.
