I want to tan a Moose hide and leave the skin thick and stiff. I plan on using Liqua-Tan to tan this hide. What kind of problems will I have as far as the Liqua-Tan penetrating the hide. I plan on pickling, and then thinning the hide a bit, but want to leave it thick overall.
Any opinions on the best proceedure? Is there a rule of thumb as to a thickness you should not exceed? How will I know if the solution has soaked down far enough?
Thanks for the help,

Get a hold of Mark at Knobloch's. He'll help out more on Liqua-tan and the thickness of your hide.
The Liqua Tan will penetrate but slowly if its thick. You will
want to heat up your oil and you will need to apply a little
more than normal to get proper coverage. Yes if the skin is
left thick it can be a little stiff. You can follow up with
some Tanning Oil #1 or Liqua Soft.
