The whites will not be white!

It's one of the problems using a vegetable tan for Taxidermy. It will discolor the lighter colors. All of them have a color associated with the source - and they all are different colored browns depending on the amount of impurities they contain. For leather this is good - for Taxidermy it isnt! Vegetable tans make a very durable piece of leather - but I'd avoid it for Taxidermy purposes!
