    I’m about to tan my first animal, an average size grey squirrel (+a small rat), and I can’t find instructions anywhere saying how many gallons of water I should be using along with the tanning stuff.

    TruBond tanning kit
     
  4. The kit with 1000B? If so, that's a brush on tan. You don't mix it with water, just apply the tanning solution to the skin straight from the bottle.

    I can't imagine a product not having instructions with it. I would contact the seller.

    When I tanned squirrels in a submersible, I used one gallon of water.

    sorry, i should’ve worded my question better- i meant the other stuff in the tanning kit that is mixed with water, the rehydrator and degreaser and such. thank you for the help though, everybody!
