I have acquired two small tanned hides. One is a goat skin and the other is small kangaroo. Both have nice clean inner sides, but still have the hair/fur on the outer skin.
Q1. Do I just shave this for a raw leather finish?
Q2. Once the hair/fur is removed and it comes time to colour it, is there special dye or can I just paint it with a leather paint (used for shoes)?
