Using Liqui-tan: Need Advice

Submitted by Bill on 11/23/99. ( )

Am using liqui-tan on elk hides. Unable to keep garage at room temp. Our temp has been about 30 degrees on average. How long should I let the hides sit with liqui-tan on? (Until they dry or a certain length of time) The instructions say 4 days at room temp. It's been 3 days and they are just now showing signs of drying. Also, I would like to know how many times you apply liqui-tan: 1 or 2 times.

I using this tan and enjoy it a lot do simply this. Rub on the liqua tan ( warm that is ) let it sit for a couple of hours 4 )then I put it the freezer till I'm ready to mount it a week or two. Take it out rinse it, cause I get sloppy and mount it. Works great this way.

Skin will turn white

When the liquid tan is finished working, the skin will look white, as if it had no oil on it at all. It usually takes about 6 days, not sure at that temp. First, spread it on, in a couple hours wipe up any puddles, let it sit until it's white. Or, as Frank mentioned, you can freeze it anytime.
