I just ran out of my 3 year supply of formeldyhide, and cannot find anyone that sells it any more. I use it for tanning fish skins and it works great. I tried other tans but none compare with the results I get from formeldyhide. Does anyone know where can I purchase some?
Have a great Christmas

John, I hate to break this to you, but

And secondly, unless you know something I don't, it really ISN'T a tanning solution. It's an enbalming or preservative chemical. Aside from that it's not a healthy chemical to have around you and certainly not one that should be in contact with bare skin. There are safer and BETTER alternatives. Denatured alcohol is also a preservative and not great for your body, but certainly better than formaldehyde. Methanol is still another. And truth be know, I'm not so sure that you couldn't just wash the skin in a little soap and mount it. For years, I DP'd them.
