Hello Bruce !!!

Could you tell me if you can use the same tanning techniques on a deer cape as well as a skin for a rug? If not what types do I need to learn.
Thanks Lance!

You can use the same tanning techniques, but obviously when you mount the cape, you dont have to consider softness, but for a rug you do! So in that sense, you have to oil and either work the skin for a rug soft by hand, or use a 6' Tumbler and sawdust to do it for you. I also highly recommend using EZ-100 for doing rug work. Since its washable, it holds up better under circumstances where it may be damp or liquids spill onto it. Its difficult to wash out! And if it gets too dirty, they can always wash it in lukewarm water using a mild detergent.
