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!

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 20 months ago 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
