What is the easiest way to get started?

My sons and I are excited to learn how to preserve a hide, but we know nothing about it. So, I'm asking questions. Any advice?

Do yourself a favor and do as Bruce says. My recommendation is to get the EZ100 tanning kit to get you started. Comes with everthing you need except salt and vinegar and instructions anyone can follow. It will produce beautiful tanned hides you will be proud to hang on your wall or mount. Go for it.

I would start with a good video on skinning, turning, splitting ,fleshing and salting a cape. I like the one by McKenzies . Someone else can also give you there choice. Hope this helps. Randall

Where can buy in the Philippines or Hong Kong the EZ100 Starter Kit for tanning? How much does it cost to ship via UPS, DHL or other couriers to the Philippines in case there is none for sale in Asia?
