I am trying to tan my first hide (hair on). Where can I find some of the simple ingredients such as Borax and Alum?

Thanks

Chris-
Borax can be bought at the grocery store, 20 mule team borax- not
Boraxo!!
Alum can usually be bought at a farm supply or plant nursery,
aluminum sulphate or ammonium aluminum sulphate( non-ferrous,
or "iron free"). The least expensive salt is also found at
feed stores or farm suppliers, fine milled feed salt.
