    I am going to try tanning for the fist time and have a question. I plan on getting the lutan f 1 lb kit from van dykes and want to try a red fox, weasel and skunk, possibly more if it turns out. But I am wondering if I can do put all 3 in the pickle solution at the same time and same with the tanning solution, or is best to do 1 at a time?
     
  2. I just bought some lutan f and if you are planning on doing more than just a few hides I would go with a larger kit. It is twice the price for a 4 pound kit but you get four times as much.

    I have one more quick question. What all does the lutan f kit come with, on van dykes site it just says it has almost everything for a complete tan besides salt, does it come with pH testing strips, fur brightener, salinometer...?
     
  7. It comes with the tanning agent, saftee acid, pro-plus oil, and a few ph test strips
