    I am trying to find the easyest method for tanning and was wondering what you guys and girls use, and why, I was looking at the CURATAN and LUTAN F, what would be the easyest to use I have no problem with alot of steps and I know that I dont what to use the liqua-tans, so any feed back would be great and I thank you now

    I use lutan F for the last 30 plus years exclusively, long shelf life , stretch. I experimented with other tans over the years brush on etc, was not satisfied, If you have tried the rest use the best!

    crazycrow Sure ucan trust the government,just ask any indian

    I use lutan f for most of my tanning,but i use EZ tan on wallhangers and furs i know will be made into hats ect. because it's waterproof and will not wash out.

    I did not know that the curatan was a paint on, so that would be out to. I have not herd alot of good things about the liqua tans , are the simple to use, I am new and looking for a good tan to use but I dont mind a few more steps if its going to be a good tan
     
  9. I like paratan myself...

    Use Krowtann..........Rick Carter says it's a complete tan and that,s good enough for me...........
    Whatever you use.........Good Luck to you
     
  12. Quite a few of us in here use Krotann but not on everything. I've tried many different tans over the years and they all seem to have their own unique benefits depending on what you're looking for. Personally, other than shipping my skins out to a tannery, Krotann seems to me to be the easiest and I'm quite satisfied with the results, but many others may have their own preference depending on what their looking for and how hard they want to work... Krotann works for me. Try it, you may like it, many do, it's easy and it works...

    I'll vouch for Liqua Tan. I use it on every whitetail that comes in my shop, as well as small mammals. The large stuff I send off, just because I hate shaving them, but I have used it on elk with great results. I'm not sure why you are refusing to consider it, but it's a really nice, white leather tan with plenty of stretch that is pretty easy to do in house. We've been using it for 20 years, and I doubt I'll ever change to anything else.
