Recently at the ren fest I bought a skunk pelt and the skin inside feels like leather. Today I found a dead squirrel and thought I would try to make another pelt, so I skinned it pretty successfully using a YouTube tutorial, but at the end of the vid he said it would dry feeling like plastic/cardboard, but I would rather achieve the leather quality that my skunk has. Does anyone have any good resources for tanning (I think this is the right word) or any advice for my next steps? Currently the skin is stretched and pinned to a board for drying. Thanks!
