cream tanned cape eyes cracking

Submitted by johnney c on 02/25/2004 at 22:03. ( )

I have been using rineharts tanng cream on my personnal deer capes for a couple years now,and have just noticed on my heads that are say 2 yrs old some minor cracking around the eyes,the skin notthe magic sculpt.
I thin paper thin about threeinches around the eyes with the skife knife and use rineharts hide paste .
Any ideas on what i could due differently to resolve this problem would be greatly appreciated.
n Thanx

the tanning cream? Like Dan said it may be your tanning method. Shortcuts usually lead to shortcuts in quality too.
