Hang cylinder from caudal fin

Attach a string around the caudal fin and suspend for drying. It may take a day to dry. Once dried it can be used to make dolls or containers for artifacts. If worked by rubbing between your hands it can be given an interesting texture and some of the stiffness can be removed from it. The skin is now ready for some interesting artwork to be accomplished.
