Baboon hide

Discussion in 'Tanning' started by hairy perch, May 24, 2016.

  1. I have a baboon skin that I bought on here some time ago that was salted and dried. My question is ,can I rehydrate the hide and krowtan it or tan it in my pressure tanner? Or would I be better off sending it out.

    Depends on how skilled or how much experience you have in dressing furs, if you do not send the skin out its just that easy.

  3. Muscle; I have done plenty of deer,coyote bobcat ect. but never a salted hide. My question is can I just rehydrate the skin in water and add a little Lysol if necessary Then tan as usual. Don't want to send it out because of cost and not knowing if it is all there.
  4. Just read the re-hydrating question 3 articles below. Thank you guys
