Can an air dried skin be tanned?

But be warned, this is not the best way. Many of the African capes come back "flint dried" and they are extremely brittle and should not be rehydrated until they are ready for a pickling solution. Once pickled, you're in better stead, but it ain't over till the fat lady sings or the tanning and oiling are complete.
