I'm sorry to chip in with a spurious reply but I first thought this thread was about drying swimming costumes made of fur...

I thought it was:

I'm a palm fan too.
It's EZ on the tool & hands.
I like them still kinda wet & fresh.
They will start drying as you carve them.
When your done keep them inside & dry.
They will dry out, get light & last forever.
Put them outside they get wet & god takes them back.
