Skulls and Skeletons / Re: CWD

The skull could be simmered and the brain broken up with a coat hanger or the like and washed out.  I'm sure a pressure washer would suffice but you'd be wearing brains if you tried it.

Great work everyone!
Thanks for the great info fellas I appreciate your time and wisdom.

Tanning / Re: McKenzie brush on tan
« Last post by George Roof on Yesterday at 11:09:27 PM »
I use the paint on and it has an exceptional amount of oil in it already.  You're likely to have it on the hair.  The tan takes about 6 hours to penetrate.  My suggestion at this point would be to work it some right now.  Once you're worked the hide, wash it with a good degreaser.  Then oil it and work it again.  Once all this is done, the hide needs to go into a bird tumbler (if you don't have one, put about a pound of hardwood sawdust into a garbage bag and toss the hide in.  Tie the bag end and VIGOROUSLY shake the bag off and on for a couple hours.  The sawdust will remove the oils from the hair and dry the surface of the skin.  Your hide will come out fluffy and bright. Carefully work the hide once more.  Keep an eye on it as it dries.  If it gets a hard spot or dries stiff, carefully reoil it and rework it.
And wipe it off quickly.  Enough will stay on the horn to bring it back.  Don't worry about it glistening.  Within an hour or so, it will soak into the horn and be that same semigloss appearance.
50/50 linseed oil and turpentine.  Put on lightly
