here we go, if i did not have a round knife or pressure washer or etc. only a scalpel with several blades and fleshed/shaved a deer cape the best i could (which would not be to thin) and wanted to use krowtann would it help to leave the cape in the tan(mixture?) longer than the directions call for? and what would be long enough? and would it shrink considerably? what a question.(question's) i was just curious on what everyone thought. thanks, how long

the directions. That's all I used (scalpels) before I started sending them to the tannery. BP
The directions say to remove after the skin is white(1-4 days) and do your washing and neutralizing. then let drip and do your final fleshing. So if everyone is following the directions then they aren't putting it back in or tanning it longer. good Luck
Liqua Tan has been around for over 25 years, and it was introduced as a one step, just flesh out a skin and apply the tan. A skin can still be tanned faster using more conventional methods, soak a skin in Pre Tan for 5 to 12 hours shave rinse drain and Liqua Tan. Most skins are ready to shave after 7 hours, so in 10 hours you can have a ready to mount skin. Just food for thought, if your looking for quick and easy.
and they sure are DIFFERENT than oldshaver's post
The only skin that will be ready to shave in 3 hours will still be flexable, not hard dry salted. Five to twelve hours depends on the animal, and the extent of drying time it has had. Ok, 11 hours. The directions on alot of these products have variances, and require the abillity to adapt, otherwise youll be on here asking questions on a daily basis. Fortunatlly there are a few products that are dummy proof.
