If you killed an animal, but you don’t have the money to take it to a taxidermist, think about just showing him the skull. However, to do this, it must first be boiled. This will help prevent it from becoming infected over time.
You can carry the skull of the taxidermist and prepare it for you. However, this house does not need expensive equipment. Just take a large metal pot big enough to fit a skull. I hope he’ll have plenty of room to fully immerse himself in the water.
When you cook a skull in the house, it quickly fills with the smell of the brain. So it’s usually best to do it outdoors. You can use a propane water heater under the pan to bring the water to a boil. Another option is to use fire.
First of all, you need to boil the skull in clean water. If desired, you can add a small amount of conventional bleach to the water. You may have to sterilize your skull, and adding bleach to the water will trigger this process. However, it is important to note that too much bleach should not be added to the water. Once it boils, too much bleach will damage the most delicate bones around the nose and eyes.
Cooking helps to weaken the meat left on the skull. You need to cook the skull a little and then tear the meat off before lowering it back into the water. If you want the meat to come off more easily, you can add a borax to the water. This process can take several hours to complete. Be careful, as the remaining meat will eventually smell.
Sometimes you have to weld a skull with attached horns. It is best not to let the horns get into the water. If they get into the water, they’re likely to discolour. Excessive smoke can also cause forest discoloration. You can prevent damage from the smoke by wrapping the horns with foil while the skull is cooked.
If you make a mount on the skull, you want it to be as white as possible. That is why it should be blanched after removing all meat when cooking. You can fill the container with bleach and soak the skull. It will also help to remove any traces of oil from the skull.
It’s not the only way to whiten your skull after cooking. You can just let it dry in the sun for a few weeks. When it dries well, you can paint it with acrylic paint in the right color. This paint is very easy to find in any DIY store.
