It is a pickle. After three days in the acid you shave the hide thin, place back in pickle for 24 hours than neutrilize in baking soda than tan using which ever method you prefer. Make sure the PH stays below 2 or the possibilty of slippage will occure. You can final thin not flesh the face after tanning. All fleshing should be done in pickleing stages...Paul
