rack treatment again

Submitted by dan on 4/29/06 at 4:47 PM. ( )

Hey, I talked to a guy today who had a skull and rack up on his wall that was absolutely pristine and I asked him how he got it that way. He told me that he just sank it in a farm pond for about 6 or 7 months and the fish ate everything off it. He said that he didn't do a thing to it after that. It looked great! weird huh.

Probably just a large scale maceration for the most part.

If there wasn't the risk of an animal running off with the skull, it would be a preferred method I'm sure, as it would not require the less than pleasant water changes.

You would have to be insane to soak a customers skull in a pond. There are too many things that could go wrong and you could lose the rack or mess it up. Boil the damn thing in sal soda and take a dremel tool, get the meat off you cant scrub off with a tooth brush and shut up.

You have fun replacing the calcium in your skulls with the sal soda bud.

By the way, if you post an address, maybe someone local can provide somewhere where you go get a few anger management classes.


Can't we all just get along!?
