    Very new and am trying snake skin first. I see videos of people using 50/50 alcohol and glycerin.. The only glycerin I can find is vegetable glycerin. Is that what I need.

    I'm pretty sure that would be the same. The product I buy is just glycerin and is sold in pretty much any pharmacy.

  3. Yes that is what I've used in the past. Just keep brushing it on liberally everyday until it won't absorb any more

    Thats the mix i used for my snakes. I mixed enough up and just soaked the skins for 5 to 7 days. Rolled up on a stick and let air dry for a week
