Skull Pictures

Here are some of the pictures from my bear skull.... I think they turned out pretty good considering my first two boils were in bleach and I did them for about 6 hours each.....I definitely thought the one hour boils worked best (and then peel off as much of the tissue everywhere as possible).....I did 6 of them (including the long first two in bleach) and then two in 40% hydrogen peroxide (got it at a hair salon supply store by our house) it was about $4.00. Another thing I learned is do the peeling shortly after you take the skull out of the water....if you wait a while or over night it gets too hard and not as much comes off.......He was munching on chocolate covered cherries when he passed away...that is the black on his teeth that I couldn't get off.......by my unofficial B&C scoring I have him at 14 & 14/16 inches.......not huge but my first..........enjoy!

Front View......During one of the boils his lower Jaw split right in two.....I super glued it back together with a spring clamp and it turned out pretty good.
