Using McKenzie Leather Oil

McKenzie Leather Oil Instructions:

Mix 2 parts warm water to 1 part McKenzie Leather Oil.

  1. After the skin has been tanned and towel dried (damp to the touch), apply a liberal coat of McKenzie Leather Oil to the flesh side.

  2. When skin becomes semi-dry, pull and stretch until skin is pliable (Example; work the skin over the square edge of a table). When dry, sanding with coarse sand paper will improve softness of skin.

Note:The thicker the skin, the more work is required to produce soft pliable leather.

Keep out of reach of children.
