First off, I want to say, if you PICKLE FIRST, I cant see why products like Liqui-Tan, JRTS, cant be just as effective as a multi-step tan. TANNING, AND OILING, can be accomplished in one step. Pickling, tanning, and oiling, all in one step, CAN NOT HAPPEN! It is NOT happening, no matter if the hair falls out, or not! Shouldnt you treat ALL the skins you are going to mount, with the same respect? Why would you treat high dollar skins, differently , than the skins you get in on a regular basis?
