I did 2 deer heads this year. I used a power washer [has to have a heater on it] to get all the meat ,eyes brain, and anthing else off that needs to be off. Then let it dry. Took hydrogen peroxide and brushed on all the skull. Kept adding peroxide untill it was white enough. One hour to wash and less than one hour to apply peroxide. Turned ou nice.

Here is a deer head that I did this year. I really like the base. You can switch the plate around and it will also hang on the wall.

Here is a european mount I did for my wifes big buck (first buck if you can beleive it). I too had a problem with whitening the skull while boiling and bleaching. The bases of these horns were bright white when done boiling. I used Minwax red oak stain, brushed on with an acid brush, let it sit for a few minutes and wiped off the excess. I think it turned out exceptionally well. This deer had a reddish hue to the horns naturally so it was almost a perfect match to the color. I didnt want to go for the "bleached white" fakish look, but a more natural look to it. It has a bit of blackish/blueish area's on it and I think adds character. What do you think?

Here is a javalina skull I did last month. It had been in the freezer for a year or two, but I finally got it out and boiled it out and applied a little 40% peroxide.



I'm not sure what those javalinas had been eating, but it almost looked like silvery gold plating on their teeth.

Cool pics everyone...Fox skull I did a year or two back. Let the bugs do most of the work then finally a 50%-50% water-bleach mixture do the rest.

My wife use to work for a place called research mannikins in Lebanon Oregon. They sell skull bleach and degreasers. I think you can order a far more powerful hydrogen peroxide.

Any suggestions on how to mount the moose skull/horns on a exterior wall? They will be mounted above my garage door facing into prevailing winds and need to know how to mechanically attach the back of the skull to the exterior wall. Curious how a large skull and rack is attached to a plaque for a interior mount.

Done deal:
