Can I shave my Cape more after I have tanned it?

Submitted by Jim R. on 1/10/00. ( )

I have a cape that I tanned using Liqu-Tan. I used all the
steps for a good tan ie. skin,flesh, salt,brine rehydrate
rinse, pickle, shave, pickle, neutralize,rinse then tan.
After reading some of the advice on the forum I now feel
that I did not shave the hide thin enough. My question is
can I now thaw out the cape that I did freeze an shave the
hide thinner and then mount it?

I have shaven hides after tanning with no problems. If I feel there are areas that need a little touchup I will shave some more and then put a little more cream on just to be safe. Good Luck, Mark
