[A supply Co.] Dry Tan does not tan, it is dry preservitive.

Ok, people less set this straight one more time. BRAND NAME "DRY TAN" is not a tanning method it is just another dry preservitive, thats all nothing else.

A DRY TAN is a leathered hide you receive back from a tannery or do yourself following the steps to make a REAL LEATHER.

To rehydrate a DRY PRESERVED hide is risky at best.

After several e-mails and phone calls trying to help a Taxidermist with shrinkage, it turns out it was DRY PRESERVED with [a supply company] preservitive only and was never really tanned.

It's irritating when that happens isn't it?

I went through the same thing a couple weeks ago.
