I am ready to glue the nose pieces back in my European skull. Should I bleach (Hair grade Peroxide) the skull before gluing back in the pieces or Glue then Bleach?

Thanks Hook! ;\)

I have used bleach for years, but the made the teeth fall out. I just finished a european mount. It came out real nice.
1. This time I boiled the head in water with a cup of borax added, then removed all the meat.
2. I then soaked the skull in regular peroxide 3%, could not find a stronger solution.
3. Let it dry overnight.
4. Gave the skull a coat of clear paint.
Glue pieces last, after bleaching.
Hope this helps,

Bos' can go to a beauty supply shop and purchase Volume 40 peroxide, which is actualy a 12% solution.
