I appreciated the responses from the previous post, but only one had used it (and that didn't sound good). I think the advertisement in Breakthrough Magazine states over 2000 taxidermists, including national and world competition winners, are using it. Are any of you out there and feel like commenting? I saw that the maker of it had did a demo at the national show so someone must have tried it. Why would he be allowed to give a demo if it is doesn't have at least some credibility? Or, is this just false advertising? Somewhat confused, Lance

I said it didn't work. I said that those quickie products have come and gone for years. The types I tried just don't work!
Check out the post on 10-02-01 about proper salting and the use of instant tan. better still, go to the archives<<<<<<<(over there) and type in "One hour tans". The products have been around in one form or another for years. There is "Curatan", "Dixietan", "Trappers Tanning Oil","E-Z Tan", "Syn-Oil", and old thing called "Lecuatan"....and a host of others. None actually tan a hide.
Try this if you have it. Mix equal amounts of oxalic and tannic acid crystals in water. Make a paste and smear it on a green hide. Leave for one hour. Remove.......Feels like leather, doesn't it? It ain't.
Take a green hide. Make a paste from laundry detergent and salt. Apply this to the green hide. Let sit for two hours, remove and rinse. Feels like leather again, right? It ain't leather either.
