I am tanning a fox with lutan f. Following the instructions, and weighing the skin, it is taking 1 gallon of water for the mix. I used the smallest tub that have but the one gallon of water is only about 3/4 inch deep. I would like to have the fox sitting in more water. Is it okay to double up the tanning mix, so there is more depth to the water?

you will only wast it,and could cause stifness.get yourself a 5gal. our smaller bucket,and stir more often.
Sorry, have to disagree with Roger. I see nothing wrong with doubling your amount providing you do it proportionately. 2 gal water, 4 ounces Lutan is what I would do. So what if you "waste" 2 more ounces of Lutan. The skin gets more soak and you don't have to be checking it to stir so much. If time is money then the 2 ounces will be worth the cost savings in time. I don't see how you'll get more stiffness out of doubling up your mix unless you double up on Lutan and not water? I don't know about that? Maybe Roger can learn me on that one.
