cow ->zebra

Does anyone know how they put a zebra print on a white cow hide or leapord prints on rabbit furs? I have a white cow hide I would like to try it on. Also do you know where to get the supplies to do it?

Just a Wild Guess

I think that they are done with a silk-screen process. Small hides like rabbits up to about calf skins could probably be done on the same type of equipment used to do t-shirts. To do a cow hide you would have to make a very large screen, and that might have to be done in a studio with specialized photographic equipment. Junior College art departments will sometimes have community education classes on serigraphy (a fancy word artists use for silk screening) and that might be a good place to start.

It would probably be a lot of trouble for just one hide.
