Tanning for Commercial Taxidermy

Submitted by whitey fisk on 2/24/06 at 6:00 PM. ( )

Lately I have been thinking about going back to d/p just for my commercial pieces, you know because it takes alot of time to tan every cape when you can just perserve them quickly with D/P.My question is has D/P gotten better than it used to be and if I do switch which brand is the best. I think if I use a good paste it will work out fine. It gets so old having salt, pickle, shave, tan, stretch, just for commercial purposes.

I have been using Dp for 30 years and have never had a serious problem. For the past 15 years I have been using (that guy from Luisianna's) DP with excellent results. No dripping or slipping like you get with some of them. If you like to tan, I would recommend an auto tanner. I have one and it works great as well. Probably no more difficult to use than Dp.
Also I use latex caulk for paste and have no drumming problems.
