Hey all,
My uncle just sent me about seven or eight full ringneck pheasant pelts. I use them for garment and costume making. I can't use them in this condition though--the flesh has been scraped off of the inside of the skin and it has been treated with...something, which basically amounts to salting it for 3 weeks. However, I want to finish tanning it into leather, preserving the feathers. Does anyone know how to do this without damaging the feathers?
Thanks,
Sen

Those are interesting, and I'll probably look into the cornmeal thing, but for the most part the hides are already preserved and dried--I just need to finish the job of turning the skin into leather. I'm afraid to do anything until I figure out how to do that without ruining the feathers though.

I did bookmark the site though, because it's interesting! Thanks!
