DP after Salting

Submitted by Aaron on 2/21/01. ( ) 24.235.5.101

I have a red fox cape that was killed by a car. Cape has some damage and I am afraid to handle it too much. Skin has been salted and dryed har. Can I rehydrate the skin and mount it using DP or is tanning necessary?

That's your choice. you did the most important thing by letting it dry hard(that helps lock the hair in place).
if you DP, then make certain you've removed all the salt first. a quick rinse after fleshing should be fine.

if you send it to the tannery, you'll at least have someone else to blame if it slips. :)

you choose.
