Deerskins into Buckskins
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
Two years in the making, this video is easily the most detailed, comprehensive and easy to follow guide to brain tanning. Novices get to see what each step looks like: what it looks like when the grain is coming off properly, how much effort goes into softening, what different odd textures on the skin mean, what good, pumping smoke looks like and on and on. This kind of stuff is incredibly helpful in learning this tactile art.
Experienced tanners will appreciate learning the tweaks and improvements that Matt has learned in the six years since he wrote Deerskins into Buckskins (and received ideas and feedback from thousands of tanners); including the 15 minute step that makes a whole series of improvements in the process (easier, more thorough brain penetration, easier to soften hides, and hides that turn out incredibly, incredibly, soft in the end). We guarantee that you'll learn a lot from this video!

I have seen similar DVDs marketed to this audience that look like nothing more than home movies but this DVD is very well done. I noticed some skipping (brief halts) during the opening title but after that the DVD played fine. The audio and picture were very clear and Matt was always easy to understand. My wife is not into brain tainning but she watched the DVD with me and said it was like watching the Discovery Channel. I would call that pretty high praise.
I HIGHLY RECOMEND THIS RESOURSE (get the book though as well).

Matt Richards is a pretty good instructor and has made it so if you don't know anything about brain tanning you can follow very easy! If you have the DVD too it is all the better.Published on March 18, 2014 by Zuke

Great DVD. Combined with Matt's book it is the closest thing to going and doing a course with Matt himself.Published on October 2, 2013 by A J Travers
Matt did a great job of putting this together. I have his book as well and this compliments that perfectly so don't have any doubts about buying both.Published on August 28, 2013 by Juan
