My otter will not dry

Submitted by s on 12/21/05 at 10:39 PM. ( )

I mounted a otter the Tuesday before Thanksgiving. It was commercially tanned. It does'nt seem to be drying. I've had a fan on it for a week now & it does'nt seem to be getting any better. I used a WASCO flexie form (which I don't like) & I can still move the skin alot...more than I think I should be able to. How long does it take, on average, for these jokers to dry?
