    I have a wolf that a guy bought from Alaska it's tube skinned and he just wants to hang it from the nose on his wall whoever tan it did not cut out the nasal cartilage and it's all deformed he wants me to try to straighten it out so it looks more like a nose my question is can I just rehydrated by putting in a wet paper towel and then wrapping Saran wrap around it then when it soft I can reshape it this is how I do around my eyes for deer and it works good but this is a huge wolf and I don't want to take a chance of wrecking it so I thought I would check and see what you guys think about it otherwise it looks like a pretty good tanning job thank you very much

    Yes , I would put the nose in a cup of water for 1/2 hour then do what you said , once rehydration takes place I would finish turning and thinning nostrils and let dry again .
