    Few months back i posted instructions on using lutan, got a huge response and thanks
    to you all on the advice on this matter.
    Im tanning a half bear with lutan today and the instructions said to spray clean water after
    the lutan is completed and HANG TO DRAIN WITH NO SKIN SHOWING.....
    My question is do i cover the skin side with something to stop the skin from drying out?
    and the hair side would dry somewhat , not sure on how to do this.
    tks as always,

    I believe they mean to Hang just long enough to Drain not so long it would dry out......... 15 or 20 Minutes should do it........
