    As Tony G.

    When he was with Edward Green he had some bullfrog leather samples in his portfolio.
    (Can't remember, if he actually did turn the leather into shoes, either as a sample or for a client.)

    My friend had a date with this girl who was into DIY tanning and she said that she uses this specific process where she smothers the hide in rat brains for a certain amount of time. Has anybody heard of this, or is this chick just a psychopath?

    Brain tanning has become somewhat of a home hobby craze. But how many rat brains would it take?

    No idea yet. I got to snap these in the 20 minutes between getting the kid a snack upon arriving home and then having to go play. Going to check the feel here in an hour or so once he's asleep.
