Now that the nonsense is over, buy Bruce Rittel's EZ100. It take all the guesswork out of the tanning mystery, and it's easily available at more than reasonable prices. If you don't want a "kit", call Bruce and I'm sure he'll sell it to you in 55 gallon drums.

To answer your question, yes there are simple ingredients you can buy at the store and use as a tanning agent. The problem is I can just about guarantee you won't find an oil anywhere but a taxidermy or tanning supplier, and the oil is an essential element to the process. Refer to Bruce Rittels entry about soft skins.

Additionally, (since I just re-read your question) the prices you would pay at the store are generally way more than you would pay from a supplier.

I'm not exactly sure what George was trying to say, but I think it may have been that if you are tanning just a few items, one of the kits is probably your best bet as they have all the elements you will need and they have proven to be effective in the home-tanning setting.

Good luck with it!

thanks guys
