Would you take to task a man who boils polar bears' heads for laughs?

OK, quick link to a thread about maceration by a girl who REALLY knows what she's doing. Might be blocked by Websense and others, in which case I can re-host it I think.
NMS means don't go there if you don't want to see skulls being stripped, NWS (Don't think there are any there) means don't open it at work. It's a 3 or maybe 4 page thread with pics by now.

do you need a bigger pot?

I've got something big enough to boil a toddler that you can use.


Toggle.. if you have a pot that large can you tell me what it is made of and how big it is and where I can get one like it. I am after a huge pot to 'cook' some aluminium foiling metal to make it look like pewter.

It's amazing how many women know about deboning. I will, in future, be more wary.

I once buried a ram's skull in an ant heap, as I was told this would work. The ants moved......

Himself presented me with a semi decomposed rat he found down by the chicken shed. I love it when he gives me presents but I'm not entirely sure what to do with it now

Ah bugger, sometimes they do that for a while to raise funds. The basics of it are that you de-flesh the skull as much as possible, then keep it in water around 50 degrees c for a few weeks. That will stink while it rots off the flesh, and change the water when you need to.
Even when it looks clean, it isn't - you need to keep it in the water to melt the fat out of the bones or they end up with yellow stains.
Come to think of it, I might have a spare login and password you can use - PM me and I'll have a look tonight!
