Frozen skin

Submitted by Grant on 10/22/04 at 5:15 PM. ( )

I have a large frozen rattlesnake skin. I will be using Rittels snaketan on it. My question is.......can I put the frozen snake skin directly into the saltwater to relax...or should I let the skin de-thaw first? One more question. I am not sure how well this snake was fleshed. Can I flesh or finish fleshing after the skin has been relaxed with the saltwater? Thank alot!
