I defy you to read what you've written am make immediate sense of it. Did you skip capitalization and punctuation classes? Geez.

BUT to answer that question I was able to find, YES, you can wash off the DP and tan it, but you WILL have problems. DP on the hide will raise the pH of your pickle constantly. You will need to monitor it very closely to insure the hide doesn't slip.
