No you dont have to but it only half tans if you dont, you will still be hanging a skin with a raw substance contained within.
I have fozen my liqua tan pelts and was wondering if after I take them out to thaw is it ok to wash them with dawn dish soap rince them out and then mount.Thanks Nick
You can thaw the skins and wash them out if needed, I use Relax R 2oz per 5 gallons of water, Kemal 4 will work too. You can run skins through a pickle, either a Pre Tan #110 pickle, any acid pickle or just the salt pickle soak that is described on the bottle. For better skin quality we do suggest a pre tan or acid pickle. If you do not like to deal with ph's and measureing along with neutralizing then you can use Pre tan #110, this way no need to worry about acids. We do offer a free technical handbook to anyone who would like one. You can go to my website at www.knoblochs.com and fill out a contact form or you can just click above on my email and email me you physical mailing address. We do have a new address
