    after i got the skull cleaned do i leave it be. is there any need in putting basic white or paint on it? will they prep it before they do the water transfer?

    thanks, stephen

    Make sure it is completely degreased. Very important.

    I'd let it dry longer. Some grease spots may appear after it completely dries.

    The only thing you need to do for skulls that are being prepared for Water Transfer Printing is:
    Cleaned of all meat, decreased, dried and glue down any loose parts (teeth/bone). Because this is paint and ink we are applying to the skull.
    If there is any grease left in the bone it could cause the paint to lift. You do Not have to whiten a skull before being dipped.
