I do mostly small animals; rats, squirrels, etc. I soak the hide in denatured alcohol to pickle then use dry preserve before mounting. Would I get good, softer results if I skipped the DP and used a tanning solution after the alcohol soak? Would that give me a tanned hide even if I haven't gone through the regular process of salt, relax, pickle, neutralize, then tan? Wondering if I can slap on some McKenzie tan after the alcohol bath and will that result in a workably soft tan.
