I've salted a rattler's skin and I'm wondering how long is will take to completely dry. Also is there a common oiling agent I could use to soften the skin after is dries, i.e. mink oil, ect. Any advice appreciated.

You cannot just salt dry a skin, oil it and expect it to last. It wont. You will have to tan the skin then iol it for a nice soft leather skin. Try Rittels snake tan kit
