    What would be the best method for tanning craft-quality snake skins. Is there a way to prevent the scales from flaking off or does that happen with all methods?

    Flesh them, salt them for a few hours, then mix a small batch of Krowtann and soak overnight in it. After neutralizing, towel dry and apply KrowOil. I keep them in the freezer until ready to use. They will retain their scales.

    If your going to have movement in craft projects it’s almost guaranteed to lose scales no matter what you use or do
