What to do next?

Submitted by Tate on 5/27/02. ( )

Hello,I hope somebody can help me with a decision.I'm new to tanning and not real sure what to do.I'm thinking about buying an aoudad hide and tanning it myself.The problem is that the animal was killed around 6 months ago and the seller said that the hide has been salted and dried(he left it at that).I'm going to be using Lutan-F and read that if I follow the direction's I should be fine.My question is what should I do to the hide after I get it and what to do to get it ready for the pickle.He want's 25 bucks for it is that reasonable.Thanks for the time.

Salted and dried, send it to a tannery.

Aoudads can be very greasy and hard to comb out.

How much would....

You must wash all the salt out of hide.Then mix your lutan f out per instructions and let hide soak for about a week turning and swishing every day?..Lloyd
