Im looking for ingredients for snake tanning for leather work. Im told the 50/50 alcohol-glycerin will keep the skin from being glued. I dont want to use an any kits or solutions from a taxidermy companies. I want to do this old school. Let me know you boys that have been doing this for awhile use. Thanks

About 20 days late.  

You were told correct a 50/50 mixture 

pour into glass jar make sure the skin is 100% covered

store it out of direct sunlight for 7 days

when you remove it, check for and odors, if odors put it back for a another day

using a stick, roll the hide onto the stick with the head first,  pull the hide / stretch it as you are rolling it up

then set it aside to dry
