Yup - that's about it in nutshell ;)
I recomment that you look on the WASCO site for "Serious Sportsmen taxidermy for beginners" I have the set -its all set up into lessons through the booklets, maybe not the best book(s) out here -but is affordable and offers a wide range of information in easy to follow formats. =)
First of all what did you skin out. Except for a bird or fish, I'd have to say salt the hide down.
You need to be a little more specific on what your doing. If your doing a skin of some kind. Did you turn the ears, split the lips, and the eyes. If you did all that. You need to salt the hide down at least twice. Then your ready to send it to the tannery. If your going to do your own tanning. Then you need to pickle it, neutralize the skin. Then your ready to tan it. Sorry but thats all the information I can give you now. Good luck on what ever your doing.
I dont have that much experience just yet but I can say that the serious sportsmans booklets gave me a jumpstart. I have done about 16 mounts and I think the world of the WASCO co.
