Stretching hide

Submitted by kim on 03/17/2004 at 18:03. ( ) 204.112.201.84

I got my wolf back from the tanner,and set the head,and paws,
i want to stretch the hide a little more.This is going to be a rug.Would i soak the remaining hide and staple it down to shape and size or use a spray bottle and just dampen it.Now when i staple it down is it fur side up/down.
Thanks

Kim, Sounds like the head and paws are done already? Those would need soaking first if not, but only soak till they start to soften then dampen the skin all over w/wet rag(just clean water), bag in trash bag in refrigerator over night, stretch out next day- fur side up. That's how I would do it- Enjoy, Aaron H.
