I think they turned out rather nice.

Dropped off two Pronghorn skulls that have been in my freezer several years to get done as well. Then, I have an elk skull to do.

    The skulls came out great: clean and bright white. Very nice.
    Accuracy: because white space between bullet holes drives me insane.

    Nice! I have no regrets about doing Europeans with my African game.

    I usually just lay them on a shelf, dresser, mantle, or what not. May hand the axis on the wall with wire. May not.

    Those look great - nice and white. I wonder if they bleach them to get them that white :uhm:

    Those look real nice. The first European mounts I saw, were in South Dakota, in a tire store. They were shiny and looked like they had been painted with a gloss white...........Robin

    Yes. Make a slurry out of hi power gel hair bleach, and powder hair bleach. Pure White, IIRC. You have to go to Sally beauty supply.
    Brush it on with a paint brush, let it dry, brush the powder off. Repeat as needed.
