Help! Tanned a bison hide...when it completely dried, after working it, it is pretty stiff...too much for the customer, anyway. How can I soften it, or better yet, is there somewhere I send it and let them "soften" it? The customer said he'd be willing to pay the extra. Did a smaller one (calf) and it turned out ok, but this is a much larger bison. This one is alum tanned. (In the future I'll send ALL large hides out! Too big to handle!). Thanks for any help on this!
