Hi everyone, I am actually posting on behalf of my 16 year old daughter who is obsessed with taxidermy. She has been experimenting with taxidermy based on youtube and other online resources. She is currently working on her first deer shoulder mount. I think I must have ordered the wrong product for her and so may have messed up the process. Here is what she has done so far and we need help figuring out next steps to try to save this hide. 1. She thawed the hide. 2. She fleshed it. 3. She dumped what we thought was some sort of specialized taxidermy salt all over the flesh side of it. This is the part where I guess things went wrong. It turned out that I had ordered a powdery substance that I understood to be a salt that taxidermists use called Para-Tan. I guess it is actually a tanning product. She left that stuff on the animal overnight and found that it was wet the next day (today). She got all the product off of it. We are at a loss at to what to do with it right now. She says it seems like it is already tanned (she is in another state with her grandparents at the moment) and nearly dry and that it is a nice supple, white hide. We are worried it might be greasy though or maybe some substances need to be neutralized. We are total newbs and no idea what we are doing. If this were you, what would you do to preserve the hide? Should we wash with some degreaser? Do we still need to dump actual pickling salt all over it? Should we soak it in some salty water? I just don't know what to do now. Should we freeze it until we figure something out? Appreciate any advice that you have.
