    ez-100 will not come out when re-hydrating , lutan will make the water an opaque colour , washing out the lutan .

    I just tanned my first cape and used Liqua tan with there Safety pickle. Seemed to work well. And they say the Liqua tan will not wash out. Has anybody worked with these products before?

    lutan is actually coming out of the skin , ez-100 will not , and ez-100 opens the fibers better and puffs the leather better then lutan.
     
  7. EZ-100 is the way to go.

    I am in a similar predicament. I have a skunk that is fleshed, salted and I just rehydrated it and degreesed it in some kemsol-4 I believe. I would like to tan the thing versus use DP or something. I have never tanned anything, So to tan a skunk what would be the best way to go? I see a bunch of pint and quart kits in the catalog, I am leaning that way versus buying a gallon of something I might not use again. Hope someone can help me out..

    I use safety acid and liqua-tan the most,also use ez-100 and lutan-f.I don't know if the info. about the lutans right or not,Bruce Rittel said that lutan would last for a long time-I think it would take repeated rinsings to leach all the tan out but as far as I'm concerned,I never had a problem with it. ;D
