WASCO has a great video on tanning.

much easier to send out,,, but then again, if you want to try, you need to start somewhere, decide if a creature you have is disposable and if it is,,, start with learning on it... i have many failures to my name, but some good things to,,, wouldnt have learned if didnt try. dont know what cream they all are talking about either.

They're probably referring to Rittel's Quik-N-Eze or Knoblocks Liqua Tan, both work well if used correctly. Most suppliers carry either, I know McKenzie Supply does.

Your help is greatly needed, I would appreciate if someone would e-mail me step by step instruction on how to brain tan, hair on deer hide. Nor I or my husband have ever done this and would like to learn. There's a first time for everything!

Thank You So Much,
