-Pine resin for glue making( reasonably large amounts)

-Xanthorrhoea resin for glue making (reasonably large amounts) .Also possibly the flower spikes for friction fire.

-Deer Antler

-Green Animal hides salted to be brain tanned. possibly Fox, Deer or small mammals.

-Stick Tang Scani stlye knife blades.Possibly broken Mora knives on new blade blanks.

G'Day HD. I have three fox skins. No heads on them, and only one has a tail still attached. They're not green though. As an experiment, I home tanned them about 12 mths. ago using the salt and alum method. They turned out pretty good. If these are of any use to you, shot me an email, and I'll post them to you.
Cheers.
