Another rehdration question

Submitted by Ritchie on 02/05/2004. ( ) 155.91.19.73

I searched the archives and found conflicting opinions, so I thought I would ask for help. I left out a step I normally do after hard salting a WT cape. I did not rehydrate the cape before putting it in the Citric acid pickle (using citric cause it was free). I've read that it will cause shrinkage & that it doesn't matter. Some people say they do this. The cape was from a large 10 pt and I am hoping I can keep the neck size close to the original size.

Let's hope it comes out soft

I usually rehydrate to get the cape fairly soft, before putting it into the pickle. If you don't it may not soften up enough to mount well. So wait and see what happens. Maybe it will still work....Steve

straight into the pickle from the salting and I've never had any problems.
