is it difficult to tan your own fur? and do you make more money if selling your fur tanned?

With advances in home bottled and boxed tans, no, it's not difficult. But it is time consuming, and it makes your house stink if you try to do it inside! I have discovered that sending it off to be tanned is a small expense, but a worth while one. I send my furs to www.fursforfun.com. Hector used to work for Moyles, and does a beautiful garment tan and a fantastic stretchy taxidermy tan. Very good guy. Tanned fur DOES have a market, but you have to find a way to tap into it, whether it be to sell the fur on consignment at some sporting goods store, or make it into hats and other things. :) Good luck!

Do a search on taxidermy supplies they will have what u want.After u tan your hide you will have to break it,meaning to make it soft by rubbing it on a table corner or something like that.I use a product called krowtan in my shop and there is no odor and it takes three days to tan but then you must let it dry.I have a taxidermy studio and this is the best taning solution I have ever tried.This product is sold by Ozark woods

I am gonna talk to someone I know who does it all the time and have him show me. I think that is the best idea for someone who is just starting is to learn from someone who knows.
