trying tan coat for the 1st time and my question is what is the dry time between the neatsfoot oil and the tan coat ? I put 2 coats of tan coat on some scrap undyed leather just to see what it was going to look like and I checked it out this morning and I like the way it looks and when I bent the leather it didn't crack .Your opinions on the dry time and the tan kote  as a finish would be greatly appreciated.

I've used tan kote on a couple saddles. I usually wait a few days for the oil to distribute well, but I guess 24 hours in a well heated room?  I only use one coat of tan kote. Mostly, I use resolene on strap goods and other leather projects. Resolene diluted 50/50 goes on easy, dries fast and even, and gives a longer lasting resistant coat than tan cote from all accounts. I used it on saddles because it gives a nice finish that eventually wears off so the saddle could be oiled. Hard to re-oil w resolene.   --John
