what makes you think the salt is going to keep the skin from spoiling? You need to tan it up if you want it to last.
I had salt dried snakes that I used for long bow backing. The only thing protecting the skin is the clear coat on the bow. I have one that has been on the bow for close to 10 years and is in terrific shape. However, I did start tanning them a couple of years ago with Rittels EZ 100.
