    I would like to try the aluminum sulfate tan. it uses as I understand it aluminum sulfate along with oxalic acid and salt. but I cannot find out how much of each to use? say for a coyote hide. anyone use this formula and can dial me in. thanks

    Those products should come with instructions. It was about27 years ago when I tried it and I seem to remember instructions coming with it then.

    no instructions in this stuff I didn't order it from a taxidermy supplier either so maybe that's why. thanks

    IT would be good to check PH on this formula. Charlie
