I have tried several methods for tanning hydes in the shop.
I tried Rhienhart's Cream Tan. This seem to be an easy and affordable
method. Does anybody have any suggestions or comments? Thanks

An associate talked me into using a cream tan once about 25 years ago. The product may have been Curatan, but I don't remember having to use a pre-pickle with it. It seemed greasy to me, and I only used it on a couple of swamp rabbits and a couple of rodents, if I remember correctly. The skins felt "funny" to me, but it all worked out all right, I guess. I have not used the product you mentioned, although I would imagine most were similar. I never re-ordered the stuff, whatever it was. The mounts I did with the cream tan are still in a museum to this day, so all was well, I suppose.
I am just getting started in the taxidermy business and the only tanning procedure I have used is Rhienharts cream tan. It seems to work great.
I have been using Rhienharts cream tan for 5 years.I have found that it works the best for me. Saves time easy to use.
