mixed 1:1 developer and quick lite powder…painted on thick coat to a few skulls that were pretty white to begin with as an experiment…left on for 24 hours…covered each skull up in a plastic grocery bag and left indoors where there is heat…hardly any different than they were before…any suggestions as to where went wrong??? The developer is so expensive per bottle to keep experimenting with so i need some advice. I have 2 moose skulls and a bison skull to do and was thinking of trying them in a soak…can I dilute the 40 volume in water enough to cover the large skulls in a medium plastic tub? Should I have left them longer??? How much can 40 vol. be diluted in water to fill a medium tub? Can I reuse the soak again or is it only activated once and then stops??? Sorry for all the questions here and yes, I know I can do advanced search…I cannot spend the time to search at the moment and hope there are some helping hands out there willing to share your experience…many thanks!
