getting good even color on skin

Submitted by Ryan Orr on 11/6/05 at 10:52 PM. ( ryan.orr@att.net ) 72.244.57.72

I have a coyote i'm tanning. the skin side is very dark and
dried blood looking. And it does not look like it is going
to change. How do I get this to look like good finished leather.
Is there somthing I can wash it in to get the skin a good even color.
I don't want to shave it the skin is very thin now.
I tried the search but could not see anything.
Any coments would be appreciated.

The cold hard fact...

Is that blood is hard to get out of "skin". If the skin is not tanned yet you can use STOP-ROT to get some of it out. Blood Eater from Rittel's works well too. I don't worry much about blood in the skin, After tanning you can't see it very well anyway. To each his own. Joe
