Is a Dry Tan inferior in ANY way?
Thanks in advance

Just takes more effort to get it back to mountable condition than wet tans. Should only be stored outside refrigeration/freezing for no more than one year. After that, it's prone to disintegration.
alot of production taxidermists use borax, or dry preservative, it does not tan the skin, it only preserves it. then with humidity, or it gets wet, it turns back into the raw state of a raw skin. which is not a good thing, it saves time when doing PRODUCTION WORK, to produce 30 mounts, but customers dontknow this sometimes. mike wiland CUSTOM CREATIONS TAXIDERMY @ FOR HOOKERS ONLY BAIT SHOP EDINBURG , OHIO
You would think folks as your self would know the difference between a wet tan and a dry tan. He is NOT talking about dry preservative he is talking about the skin being allowed to dry after it is tanned.
I too am amazed at the numbers of taxidermists who immediately assume dry tan and dry preservative are one in the same. No wonder the beginners get confused.
SORRY I WAS TALKING A DIFFERENT SUBJECT DIDN'T MEAN TO HURT ANYONE'S FEELINGS.
LIKE I SAID SORRY MY BAD, SORRY ALL THE OLD TIMERS HAVE TO BE SO DEFENSIVE AND FIGHT FOR THEMSELVES, INSTEAD OF IMPROVE THIER WORK. MY BAD.
I'm not an old timer and my feelings weren't hurt, but when it comes to handing out advice make sure it is solid and true. I only give advice if I know for a fact that my information is good. George knocked my stones in the dirt once or twice too for giving poor info. LOL!
