Do you have to oil the hide after you have tanned it if you are going to mount it on a form?

If you using EZ-100 you should. What this does is help in controling the shrinkage. Trust Bruce and do as he says and you will never have a bad hide.


YES!

YES! All tans require oiling! To prevent shrinkage later as it dries. The oil, besides adding softness, also help the skin keep its "size" or dimensions!
