What are some good recipes or techniques for preserving or tanning snake skins?

What I have done after the snake is skinned is to lay it on a flat board and stretch and staple the skin to the board. I then take a knife and scrape all of the flesh off of the skin. It is important to get every last bit off. Wash it off with a hose. Then stick the skin out in the sun to air dry it. Simple as that.
