I live in West Tn and am thinking of starting to do skull mounts and the dipping in paint as an option. For the quickest turn around I had thought about getting a large crock pot to simmer the skull in but I am concerned about degreasing it. Is there something that needs to be added to the water before doing this or is this a bad idea altogether. When it comes out is it best to soak in peroxide and what else do I do for a plain white skull mount. If I am dipping in paint there is no need to whiten correct? Also if I want to use Maceration do I just clean all I can as far as skin and eyes and then place in water preferably with a heater and let sit for 5-7 days. This sounds like the best method right?
