Ok, so I have parts of Silver Laced Wyandotte capes. Not the whole capes. Just part of it. My mom slaughtered them, and this was what she saved: Here is how big they are. That is not an adult pinkie finger. So I stretched them on a board, and mixed up about 3 tablespoons of Borax and 3 tablespoons of salt. I have been changing the mixture once a day, and they have been curing for 3 days, they are getting dryer and stiffer. Somebody is buying both of them for $15.00. So. Am I doing anything wrong? Are they worth $15.00? Thank you for your input!
