Hey all, Newbie here. I was just wondering how people came across their fox hides?
I've been wanting to try tanning a fox hide for some time now, but seem to be having some trouble getting hold of one! Previously I've tanned rabbit hides with the washing machine process that alot seem to use on here, and I can happily say it seems to do the job brilliantly for me! The only thing I thing I would like to do is find an object that scrapes better than what I am currently using. I got a new rabbit skin in last night, worked on the scrapping ect, unfortunalty it took me almost 6 hours to finish defleshing the skin, although this time I had left the head intact so was abit more tricky than usual! Its now hanging to dry for a while before I begin working it. I'm hoping to come across someone local to me who can provide me with a suitable fox pelt as I would love that as a challenge
I get the rabbit hides from my partner whos collects them from his work, and a friend who goes lamping, but as for the foxes.. I have no clue !
