    I bought a cape from Wisconsin and its fleshed and salted, how to I make it pliable to work with? It's stiff as a board, thanks in advance! ::)

    Not to be a wise ass, but if you don't know what to do with a salted cape, how are you go any further working on it?
  5. If you are new to taxidermy send it to a tannery and get Rick carter's a to z video.

  6. You could always start chewing on it.
