win the skin

  • Added:  3 months 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.

    Another bucket video lover, could you do a longer one if you get the chance? It's very relaxing.

      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.

    What a pity I'm already subscribed but then what would I do with it ...and postage to Australia probably isn't cheap

    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!

      Doing that will disqualify you from the contest...
