I have studied the little orange guy for about two hours now and of course my question is not clear to me yet. I have pickled my hide with saftee acid and tanned my hide with kwik n eze tan from Bruce Rittel. Well i dont have a fleshing machine so i do it by hand.Yes thats my first problem, I have noticed that I have some shrinkage and i am not to happy about it. Well the problem is that i already tanned it and i put it in the freezer ready to mount. Can i defrost the hide and rethin it again and tan it again. Thank you Leo

If your hide is tanned properly, you can simply thaw and thin to suit your needs before mounting; no need to re-tan.
