Tiny little pelt by KonekoKaburagi Tiny little pelt by KonekoKaburagi
No rude comments PLEASE
This was a cat kill from 4 years ago salt preserved...

Wow, that must have been hard to work with, I thought my chipmunks were almost too tiny! Nice to know that salt preserved hides will last a while though, and it's good that you were able to tan it alright

Yep as a matter of fact I just tanned it, with no slippage, rips or anything :D all it needs it a slight sanding to bring the whiteness of the leather out :D
Love this little fella :heart:

The only things I've skinned as of yet are pretty small, but my first few had problems with drying the tails and feet uou
and the little guys are awfully delicate.

Tell me about it. This little fella was like tissue paper lol.
I left the bone in it's tail. Couldn't chance cutting my fingers(again).

They even crinkle like paper, don't they?
That's the thing to do. taking the bone from a mole tail seems pretty impossible without damaging it, and they dry alright..
oof, did you cut yourself skinning? Ow

Yep! nice and crispy XD
...and I was using my grandfather's fur blades to skin it so didn't feel a thing at first until I figured there's too much blood for such a tiny animal XD

I have a baby one, and it's so thin.. I worry about tearing that one xD
Oh wow. You're a bit higher budget than me. I've just got an x-acto knife.
Gotta be careful about cutting into the guts.. so unpleasant.

True. I broke the spine on the little thing. That alone made a mess, but luckily no stink.
I actually inherited the blades after my grandfather died. It was nice having a nice thin blade, but with no handle it was risky and hard to hold like when it got a little dry, it would stick to your finger. lol
