    Alternate to real skin head

    I have some leftover drum shell parts, a couple of 14" x 3-4" deep shells that are leftover from cutting down a shell. I want to make a shaman drum like the photo attached with them. However, as a vegan, I am hoping to find an alternative to the skin head that I could wrap the same way.
