    Hey guys,

    I just finished garment tanning a red fox. I have it case skinned and it's hanging up almost done drying. As it dries I've been stretching and breaking the skin. It's almost all white, just waiting for the feet and neck to completely dry.
    Of course it's fur side in and the fur is damp. Should I be turning it inside out while it's drying and blowing the fur with a blower to help it dry or let the skin dry first then turn it fur out to finish drying?

    Thanks!!

  2. I would dry the fur, then finish it

    Thanks! I'm not actually making anything out of it. Just keeping it as a wallhanger as it is.
