That's all I use since I first tried Glen's system. I treat all my capes with Stop Rot when they are first caped out and put them in the freezer. Pull them out when ready to work on them and I use WDT acid to pickle...usually only takes 24 hrs if pre treated w/ Stop Rot. pH will spike around 3.0. Nice white skin , shaves great and very flexible. Just follow Glen's direction's and you won't be dissapointed.
ive been using krowtann but im about to make a order
gonna spread my wings and try ez100 and Glens system
hows the texture of the skin
is it easy to pass a needle through and hows the shrinkage
and over all color change when finished drying
want some opinions from people using it
p.s. i used stop rot on all my capes so far this year
ive read up on this method and it sounds like they have studied skin very well.the only thing i question is after pickling they use cam-l-c for the final step which should be the tan.but they dont call it a tan.its a leather conditioner.so is the hide tanned or not?
Paul- Sews very easy. I always try and shave my seam line thin anyway which helps a lot. Even in areas that are left a little thick it still sews easily.
Jody- Yes it is a tan. Glen (Conley) puts everything under a microscope..literally! He knows his collegen,fat,and protein!
Go to www.hidetanning.net and click on Grizz Quiz. He saved an acid swelled cape that I "cooked" in citric acid. The cape mounted great. Just follow the directions.
Forgot your other questions. I get more strech using the WTDS than any other tan I've used, but I don't claim to be very experienced and have only used a couple others. The skin is snow white and there is no affect on the hair color. Let me know what you think after you have tried it.
did my first mount when i wa 18
im in my forties
id have to ask my wife how old i am i dont remember lately
i try to learn from everyone and try knew things and keep a open mind
p.s. the other ? was about the color change after dried
krowtann doesnt change color much
i put a little krowoil on the eyes,nose and lips after mounting
ive done that for as long as i can remember
it worked with liqua tan also
