rehydrating a salted boraxed Buffelhead skin

Discussion in 'Bird Taxidermy' started by Cookingandstuffing, Oct 31, 2017.

  1. I got a bufflehead that was salted and "boraxed"
    I put it in water for 2 hours and froze it. Few days later I put it back in water with dawn for 2 hours but it does not seems to relax
    How long can i keep it in water? never done a dry skin before. The head and the neck are really stiff and the legs are like beef jerky
    Any input appreciated

    You could try just a little ammonia. That might help
