I have rehydrated some flint hard salted hides to go in a formic
pickle. When I rehydrate the skins the hair gets somewhat loose.
I placed them in the formic pickle and today they seem to be tightened back up. Just wanted to know if this was a common
problem and can I expect these skins to do ok. When I rehydrate
I use a brine solution with the recommended amount of Basacryl
and Rittels relaxer.

.......try it with out the Basacryl.1-1 1/2 lbs. of salt per every gallon of water.
Ultrasoft Relaxer works great for relaxing. No salt or bactericide needed. Just add to luke warm water. 2 oz per gallon is all thats needed
Have a good day,
