Im wondering about the use of so called brush on tans. Are they as effective as soak tans and what is the right procedure to use them?

I've used both LiquaTan and McKenzie tan, and like the results, especially if you are going to mount the skin. It's okay for a rug on thin skin animals, but with the thicker ones, you'r going to have to use a LOT of time and elbow grease to get it soft.
The procedure is salt-pickle-flesh-pickle-wash-tan. Detailed instructions are included with each one.

I tried them both. I have used Liqua tan in the past and really like it. I tried the McKenzie tan Saturday and yesterday and love it. The McKenzie tan is lighter in color and you just have to try it to see how it works. Purchase the small container to test it out. It is worth the try.
