    Sealing bone

    Have some skulls to seal off to prevent decay,
    From the research I've done acetone and duco cement is a good way to do it..... Anyone used this method or what other methods have you used?

    Dont waste your time chasing every last fps, it doesnt matter in the real world, it wont make a difference, all it will do is cause head aches and frustrations. And dont listen to silly old cunts

    I know a bloke who uses varnish. His finish is a little too glossy so maybe a satin finish would be better. Was certainly eye catching

    I've done most of my bone with cheap clear spraypaint from Bunnings or the like - had no issues whatsoever.
    I have found 2 things though, the prep beforehand makes a big difference in the bone 'colour' and satin vs matt paint makes a big difference.
    Matt is much nicer looking.

    hair spray, works a treat but you have to give it a new coat every year or so

    I use 50/50 mix of PVA glue and water. Seems to work well

    I'm drawn to the mountains and the bush, it's where life is clear, where the world makes the most sense.

    Yeah I had heard of that one. I believe we have used a similar brew to seal the asbestos walls in the coolstore here at work.
