Hey everyone, I'm having some problems with rodents (obtained as frozen reptile food). I am curing the pelts with salt, and then rehydrating them in order to egg/brain tan them (using eggs due to lack of brains right now - haha pun). However, when I wash them (in a little borax and soapy water), the fur starts falling out. Is it the borax? Its really frustrating! Or perhaps I am scraping the pelts too hard?
