Thread: flesh colored rabbit skins?

  1. #1

    Default flesh colored rabbit skins?

    Hey there,
    Does anyone have an online source for whole tanned rabbit skins dyed in the salmon flesh tones. I have some orange and white but i am looking for some creamier colored flesh toned skins. I am not interested in cross cut strips or zonker strips but whole skins. I have a source for black olive orange purple etc. but no flesh. Also does anyone dye there own? If so what colors work the best for you. I have done some experimenting with tan and orange but not quite right with the color.
    Thanks bushwaker

    If you are in Anchorage you should go to Black Elk Leather as they have many skins and many colors. You can also do a google search for dying with koolaid and get some great techniques. With the koolaid you can do just a few strips to get it down and it don't stink up the house. here is a web site for tiers and they may have some better advise for online sources..

    Hope this helps,

    Here's a good book on the subject. Well worth the cost by one of the best tyers out there:

    A. K. Best's Dyeing and Bleaching: Natural Fly-Tying Materials

    Get this and do it right the first time.
