win the skin

  • Added:  1 month ago
  • Final step in the rattlesnake skin project....conditioning.
    After skinning and soaking the skin for 6 days in the tanning solution (3 equal parts distilled water, isoproply alcohol, glycerin), I stretched and pinned the skin to a board - scales down...leaving the skin to dry outside in the shade for 4 days. One lucky new subscriber to my channel this month will win the skin and the rattle. I will choose the winner at random and the winner will be announced Friday, June 2. Contest only for new subscribers... If you unsubscribe and re-subscribe, you will be disqualified. News Theme by Kevin MacLeod is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution license ( Artist:

      Here is an old one I did years ago with my dearly departed longhorn Benita. I didn't have a waterproof GoPro at the time so I made a plexiglass trough so I could put the camera under it. Cheers.

    that is cool.. I always wondered the process that went in to that.

    mom had a friend of the family that used to do saffaris to Africa.

    he had many animals preserved. ranging from musk deer to a elephant that sprayed kids with water.
    I won't mention the bull he had to adult to put in a family channel lol.

    His taxidermist was an excellent artist.

    At any rate, I hear the deserts have many secrets well preserved.

    what is the strangest thing you found in the desert or seen in the desert?

      TheFieldLab 1 month ago

      A snakeskin is about the easiest thing prep and preserve. I would have to say that the sun spider is the strangest thing I have come across out here.

    That would make a nice belt...except, in my case, you'd have had to tangle with a somewhat longer specimen. Good luck to the winner!
