Greetings to all participants in the Forums,with the best wishes for the New Year!
Gentlemen,I would like to get some advice for the bird tan formula.May I use succefully the Aluminium Sulphate(AL2(SO4)3),or other Alums in the solution,instead of the Lutan F ?
I reviewed my old taxidermy magazines and found an article (Breakthrough,issue 33),by our good friend Bruce Rittel,who recommend the Alums as a agents in the pickling formulas for mammals.I will apreciate every opinion!Best regards!Valentin

are about as useless as windshield wipers on a cats butt. The skin is too thin to waste time and money trying to preserve it. Use borax or dry preservative. It's worked for eons.
Like Roofster says. bird tanning is a over kill. Just mix the powders together and sprinkle the skin very well.
Thank you very much for the responses to you,George and John!
I think I will follow up your advices...
Thanks again and best wishes!
I'm a rookie, never done any tanning and don't know where to begin. Lots of questions. Where do I get alum? Use it dry or in a paste. What proportions? How to apply? How long to leave on? How to remove? - etc.
