I finally got my two lamb skulls out of the peroxide, rinsed, and dried off! The smaller one still has a small amount of discoloration near the left eye socket (visible in the photo below), but otherwise they whitened up pretty nicely. I’ll post more photos when I get done whitening the rest of this batch.
Unfortunately, it might be a while before I can start whitening that raccoon skull I started cleaning a few weeks back… it’s still pretty discolored, despite spending an afternoon in a water and soap solution, so I decided to keep it in a degreasing bath for the next two weeks to see if there’s any improvement. I’m really hoping the extra time will help lighten it, but I guess we’ll know for sure in a couple of weeks. Fingers crossed!
