Paratan instruction help

    So i've had a search and browse through threads and haven't been able to find a definitive answer, so would appreciate some clarification :)
    I have just started using Paratan, i have heard many many good things about it. BUT... The instructions are quite vague
    After pickling is complete, i goes on to say use 6-8% paratan, salt etc but does not specify is this tan mixture goes straight in the pickle bath (same as previous tan i was using) or does it go into a NEW bath?

    Thanks in advance!

    Research Mannikins has a DVD on tanning. It covers Liqua tan AND Paratan.

    It goes into a new bath of water, salt and para-tan.

    Thankyou Frank :)
    Not heaps keen on buying a DVD just because the instructions arent very specific, but thankyou. Para-tan is just different to what i used to use ;)

    I had the same question, thank you Frank, I’ve been putting Para Tan in the pickle and was not convinced this was correct.
