McKenzie Tan for a Mink

can I use McKenzie Tan for a Mink?
The first experiment was catastrophic: the hairs fell after tanning with McKenzie tan. I had not to degrease the skin enough.

McTan works great and I have done several mink with it as well. I dont think the tan was your problem the first time. Good luck

it's not the tan

S,your problem isn't coming fromthe tan.McKenzie tan and all the other tans can't cure a skin that's not gone through the tanning process correctly or because of rough handling.Could you have left the skin{hair side}too wet?I let my skins drain for 20-30 minutes,then roll them up in a towel for another 10 minutes or so and then apply Liqua-tan.Also,after tanning don't pull on the hair til the hides dry if your mounting the critter,or if your making a throw piece wait til the skins in it's damp-dry state before you start breaking,and make sure your stretching the hide on the skin side{not stretching on the hair side where your pulling on the hair}.
