Re: How to tan a hide and keep fur on.
Buy one of the tanning kits available and it will come with instructions. Go for a brush on tan like Liquitan or Curatan and it will be easier. Basically you skin, flesh and salt hide heavily for 24 hours. Then you pickle hide in a 1.5-2 ph solution for 72 hours, taking it out once to final flesh it. Citric acid or pickling crystals and salt works for pickling. Then you neutralize the pickle with baking soda solution 12-20 minutes and rinse it. Next you let drain for a few hours and then apply brush on tan. As it dries in to hide you work the hide stretching and breaking it every day till it's soft while applying a softening oil like Pro Plus. Google Bill Probst's on line tanning videos for a good tutorial.
