SNAKE SKINSóWill you kindly tell me a good formula for tanning rattlesnake skins?
I know of no satisfactory method, for while the skin is thin and easily tanned there is no way to prevent the scales from coming off. The most common way is to stretch the skin out flat on a board, fastening the edges with tacks and sprinkling the flesh side, while still moist, with powdered alum and salt.
