Is it nessasary or adventageous to Pickle before Liqu-Tan?

Submitted by Jim R. on 11/10/99. ( equine&gis.net ) 216.41.33.68

I read the insructions for Liqu-Tan in the WASCO book, and
it does not mention using a pickle. If I rehydrate a salt
dried deer cape, shave the hide and apply the Liqu-Tan as
directed, will it be as good a tan as if I used a pickle
first? Thanks for any Info

I would definately use a pickle!!!!
I have used liqua tan alot and always always used a pickle!
They way I did it was
1.flesh lipe ears etc.
2.Salt
3.pickle
4.shave the cape my experience is the pickle swells the hide
5.Apply liqua tan ( put it in the microwave and get it warm then apply it)
Good LUck

Scotts right you can use the acid pickle method, Neutralize the
skin and tan. If you use the salt pickle I would use 3oz of
Pre-tan #110 to each gallon of water. Pre-Tan will help set
hair, plump up the skin, and soften. Good luck Mark
