I have a porcupine I would like to try to mount. The skin is so greasy, is there anything I should do special to tan the skin?

Degrease before you tan

You will want to make sure you use a good degreaser on the
skin before you tan it. You can use our Super Solv Degreaser
available at any dealer near you, all you need is to 2 to 3
ounces to each gallon of hot water and dissolve the super solv.
If too greasey you can mix the super solv at a ratio of
50-50 super solv to water and paint it on the flesh and let
sit for 2 hours then place back into solution. Then proceed
with normal proceedures. Mark D Knoblochs

can you submerge a porcupine hide in a pickle bath without ruining the quills.
