    Default ? about Bleaching Skulls

    I purchased some of the 40% peroxide at a beauty supply place. Once I paste it on, how long to I leave it on before I rinse it off? Thanks in advance, Scott

    I let it sit a couple days.

    I have found no ill effects from leaving it on for a couple days. Also heat really helps the process work better, I place them into a plastic bag to keep the peroxide from drying out and drop it into a sink or bucket of hot water.

    If you mix basic white and 40 vol into a paste, then bag it as Sid mentioned. I then place for several hours in front of a heat source. Get bone white results.

    I too use the basic white added to the 40 percent peroxide. I then dissolve some acrylic in acetone and paint it on, same stuff used by museums to preserve skulls and bone. Really come out awesome and seals the skulls.
