How can I make a texture pattern or stamp from this?

To make a stamp I would use liquid latex. You apply thin coats with a soft brush ... Let it dry between each coating. When you get it as thick as you want you can just wash out the skin. I sometimes make these kinds of stamps thin enough to wrap around a pot and other times thick enough to push into clay. Since you have the whole skin you could make several different ones. Liquid latex will preserve the small details.
In order to make the positive stamp you might be able to coat the latex with some kind of mold release and make another latex stamp on the inside??? But I'm not sure since I have never tried it.

Pardon me if I at first say ... ICK!.
ICK! is right. It is draped over a couple of chairs right now. I thought about inserting a long balloon into the skin, then blowing the balloon up and casting in latex. I thought it would make an interesting pattern on a cylinder mug. There would an infinite ways of glazing. I thought teenage boys would love it.

Use spray adhesive to affix it to something rigid, then use a spray acrylic to seal and protect it. If you don't need to save it, use a rolling pin to embed it into soft clay, then fire it off.

yuck! is it possible to put a perfectly sized cardboard tube inside a length of the skin and just roll it out? with some kind of spray on preservative like the stuff used to keep pastel drawings from smudging? 14 feet will allow a number of poorer choices before you get it right.
