One ounce oxalic acid per gallon of water, pickle 2-4 hrs. (50 psi) depending on skin thickness. pH 1.0. When it's white all the way through, it is ready.
Neutralize the solution and dump it.
Neutralize the skins.
Then for your Lutan-F tan... 1 ounce Lutan-F per pound of wet drained skin weight. pH 5.5. Tan for 4-6 hours (50 psi) until it is tanned all the way through.
Neutralize and dump the solution.

Take skins out, wash quickly, rinse, oil, fold up, wait 24-48 hrs. (re-oil if nec.), tumble dry.

The auto-tanner is nothing but a rotating tanning vat with a little pressure added. This is not rocket science and these instructons ARE available in the archives.

Remember - The pickle is not added to the tan. It is a separate soak.

Thank You ,Thank You ,Thank you.
