    Re: DIY Home-made "realistic" Hides

    If it's still slightly soft after cooling, place it in a DRY spot for a couple days to get the remaining moisture out. If it "dents" when you push on it, you made it too thick and it should go back onto the oven on a low temp.

    I had that happen to a batch and they turned out fine....there is just a little moisture that needs to dry out.
