    For those of you who tan bears in their auto tanner. Do you oil it in the last cycle of tanning,after you take it out or both? This will be a wet tan for a 1/2 life size.

    i don't use the oil in the tanner anymore on anything. i do the first step then flesh then degrease then back in the tanner for the next step then i wash ,spin then oil and let set for 8 to 12 hours then mount or frease.i have found that oil in the tanner makes a mess of the hair. you will get a lot less shrinkage this way.hope this helps.
