Have you wondered why noone has answered you? Read the FAQ here and do some research, we have found people remember more when they do the research. Do mean to be rude here, but a little more reading on your part from the facts within and all your questions are answered.
WOW......That was some response you got.
To answer you question about Liqua Tan, You'll want to soak it for 3 days in a salt and acid pickle, as you would with any other tan.
A good choice would be Safetee Acid. You'de mix 4 1/2 teaspoons af safetee acid and one lb. of salt (non-iodine) per every one gallon of water.
After you've let the hide soak in this solution for the 3 days, do all your fleshing work and then neutrolize with 1 oz baking soda per every 1 gal. of water and a couple oz's. of a bacteriacide and allow to soak for 20 min.
Thoroughly rinse in cold water.
Apply the Liqua Tan and let it soak in for about 8 hours. You can now either mount it or roll it up and put it into the freezer till you're ready to mount or let it air dry, rehydrate, sweat and mount!
If you need any help with this in the future.......you can contact me at (1-800) 843-3320 ext 105 or you can e-mail me at the address listed above.
Have a good day.......Dave
