If I got flat skins dipped and then shipped back, what does the tanning process then look like. I am wanting to tan the skins my self but wondering what would have to be done to tan a previously dipped skin. What exactly does the dipping process do to the skin? Would the tanning still be the same as a "fresh" skin that was killed here and not dipped or salted? Any taxidermist here that could help me with this. I have tanned deer skins in the past using a kit and doing a wet tan, could you still just do the same thing w/ skins after shipped back from Africa?
