Working With Snake Skin

Submitted by niles clark on 09/21/2002. ( )

I have cured a snake skins using a soaking solution I found on line. I now have it stretched and dried on a rack. The skin is hard and I am afraid that it will crack or break if it is bent. Is there and process I can use at this point to make it more flexible before I work with it? It is my intention to make a hat band.

If anyone has a prefered process for tanning snake skins please let me know.

I have a snake skin that is on an African drum. The drum has a crack in it under the snake skin. I am concerned about damaging the skin in the process of trying to fix the crack in the drum. If you get, or have gotten any info please let me know too.
