Silcox company has on the market a tanning kit that includes a one hour video and the chemicals necessary to tan a few small skins. the video shows how to make the tools for this project.It also shows each easy to follow step in the tanning process,for at home tanning. the two kits available are hair on tanning and hair off leather tanning. The price of each kit is 29.00 plus the shipping. I do not know the shipping cost to your location,the package weighs 6#.
