Warthog too much fat

I got a warthog cape which has being salted and dryed and left for about two years.I rehidrated and i'm trying to cut away the fat but it seems like the fat has penetrated into the skin.Is this normal?
The skin layer seems very thin.Should i pickle and hope the skin swels to get more deffinition between the skin and fatty layer?

SKIN SHOULD HAVE BEEN FLESHED BEFORE SALTING. IN MY OPINION ITS NOT WORTH SAVING.

JP.
Pickle again. You will loose some skin but you can paint after it has dried.
