after tanning...returnd to pickle..

Submitted by rl on 1/28/06 at 3:07 PM. ( )

I became pressusred with lack of time and lack of room and lack of freezer space.

Instead of oilinig the tanned goods and air drying (IS THAT WHAT I AHOULD HAVE DONE?)

I returned the tanned goods into anouther acid pickle of 2.0.

Now, after a month, the pickle reads 1.5. What should my next move be?

Next step is to figure out the real reason why you put it back in the pickle. After it was done. Try to neutralize it, and re-tan it. There is no guarantee what you will end up with.
You should have let it dry, and hung it up on a nail somewhere until you were ready to rehydrate and use it. Not putting it back in the pickle. It would have been ok in the fridge a day or two after the tan.
