263Re: skull cleaning
- Dec 1, 2006you could bury it to clean it but it stains the skull a bit. boiling
it in a large pot over a few hours will remove flesh but antlered
skulls could be tricky. i left a sheep skull outside until it was well
rotted-down. hosed it then soaked it in petrol for a fortnight to
degrease it. much cheaper than taxidermy supplies degreaseants and
just as effective. then a few days soaking in a mild bleach solution
left it white. it took the shiny finish off the skull though and left
it matt-looking. peroxide might be better and you can get big bottles
of it cheap from chemists.
