Though "plumping" may make shaving easier, it's not necessary. Most times I reshave my shop tanned hides before mounting. The machine doesn't know the difference between a plumped cape, a raw cape, or my darned thumb (I shave it quite nicely this morning as well).


Re-Shave

Jen,
If the tanned hide or cape is already hydrated, simply throw it on your machine and shave it. No need to re-plump. The only way you're going to do this is to re-pickle and re-tan, and there's no need to do that.
Most tanned skins shave nicely an a machine.Simply shave as is.

Have a good day,
Dave
