Tanning Fish skins

Submitted by Mark Biagi on 11/11/2002. ( fishmanis@shaw.ca )

Good morning to all.

I realise from some of the messages I have read on your site that this question has been asked before;however, I have been unable to find the answers. I am looking for the recipe and procedures for tanning fish skins. I hope that someone can help me.

At this time I have the skins completely covered in Borax.

Check WASCO's catalog, they have fish tanning supplies, along with other suppliers listed on this site. One of them might have what your looking for, you could also freeze the fish skins, untill you get you tanning solution. good luck, rw

If you click that <<<SEARCH icon and type in "fish tan", you'll find that there are 355 threads that explain various ways that DON'T include dry preservative.
