We do have the instructions that you want to do this
if you want to email me your address I will be glad to send
the directions to follow.
You chose an excelent tan for your project!
If you've already completed the salting process, go to your pickling process.With pickling crystals, you'll need 3 oz. of Crystals per 1 gal of water with 1 lb. of non-iodined salt per 1 gal of water.
Be sure that the crystals and the salt has been completely disolved. your PH. should be set between 1-1.5
Allow your hide to soak in the pickle foe 48 hours.
Procede with your fleshinh work. when this is complete.....neutrilize in 5 gallons of water with 5 oz. of Baking soda, and allow to soak for 20-30 min. Rinse in fresh water.
Now you can procede with your tanning.When you've finished the Lutan-F process, procede with your oiling and allow to dry for a few days.
Once dried, re-apply yor oils to the skin side and allow to soak in for at least 1/2 a day. you may either tumble it now, or with the skin side down, work it over the edge of a table or saw horse etc.
The more you work it, the more plyable it will be.
Repeat this process at least 3 times!
Follow these procedures, and I promise ya, that you'll get a nice, soft and plyable skin.
