Default Tanning fur yourself

Gonna try doing some coons and maybe a coyote or 2. Anyone have experience with the orange bottle stuff or other kits? I'm sure theres been threads on it already but cant find them.

From what I've read the orange bottle stuff isn't true tanning.. But I did 2 foxes with it 2 years ago and they are doing fine

I've tried the halfords kit that is true tanning.. I used it on a couple of beavers. It's work and time consuming.. Much more than the orange bottle stuff, but better results.


I wouldn't use the orange bottle stuff on thick hid animals like a beaver, only thin skinned non oily hides like fox/coyote. I wouldn't use the orange bottle stuff on things that have personal attachments too either.

Ya the videos I watched he did some coon and skunks and they looked good. The beaver he used a wire wheel to thin the back a little and they looked ok using the orange bottle.

I have used the orange bottle stuff on foxes as well. wasnt too bad and they turned out soft.

Tried a small bear hide last year, results were not that great.

True tanning kits are probably the way to go
