    Bleaching red stag head

    Hey guys when using hair dye to bleach a skull do you add the packet of additives or just use the hydrogen peroxide paste. The one I got has them separate. I'll add a photo of what I got to show you. Also has anyone used alkaline the Ecolab kleer klenz to be precise to clean and degrease the skull. My main concern is that it had chlorine in it

    should mention after you covered the skull wrap it in glad wrap to avoid drying out and leave in the shade to assist @jezcullen09

    Don’t over boil it either. Just half hour at a low simmer is all you need then give it a water blast. Can chuck a bit of oxy action detergent in water as well.

    I always do heads in first for 45mins then 20min bursts in boiling water with oxy detergent, water blasting in between times. if you can get some hydrogen peroxide for final whitening works well
