I'm in possession of a couple of piranha jaws. They have been cleaned, but not by me (so i don't know how). They still smell though. Any tips on how to get rid of the smell? And also maybe on keeping them from discoloring too much?

>cleaned, but not by me (so i don't know how)
pull the teeth out and super glue them back in place

>rid of the smell?
dry it using an airtight container and desiccant

seal it with an aerosol clear coat

>discoloring too much?
keep out of direct sunlight

put em in a glass of chlorine, so they are completely under water.
But don't put in 100% of chlorine, just 60/40 chlorine/water. It should get rid of the smell and make it even cleaner.

bad advice. probably some latchkey kid shitposting while his sitter is on the phone with her boyfriend.

Thanks!
Unfortunately, I don't have the skill to pull out the teeth and put them back in, as they're quite small. I'd probably break the whole jaw.
I see a lot of taxidermists recommending letting jaws soak in 4% hydrogen peroxide for 24 hours, do you think that would work?
>>
NONE OF THESE. Do not coat it. To not bleach it or use HP.
It smells because there is grease. Let it soak for a few days in dawn dish soap. Problem solved.

If you want to whiten them AFTER they are dry, you can dilute some hp in water for a night. Bleach will ruin the entire thing and too much HP/for too long will also ruin it. Both will dry it out, make it brittle and chalky.

hydrogen peroxide soak in the dark for a couple days. Specifically in a dark room.

If not this then it needs to macreate in a sealed container of dish soap mixed with water for a day or two.
I would macreate before soaking it in peroxide if I were you, just to make sure.

How were the jaws cleaned? I usually just go with a quick and easy burial then wait for the body to decompose. If the jaws were cleaned via nature then sometimes they don't need to be macreated at all, depending on how clean they are.

If you're saying they smell though, a macreation would benefit that.

pic is something I'm working on right now, it's a skunk fetus, gonna use it as a wet specimen

Put it in your mouth and rape your mother

Jesus dude that's creepy.

To elaborate, dawn dish soap will loosen any remaining tissue and draw out grease from the bone. Hp/bleach will not help because there would still be grease inside of it so you need to soak it first. Sealing it also won't work because it will just seep out from under it, making it smell for years to come.

Soak in baking soda and vinegar

what? the fetus?

Unfortunately I don't live in the US, so we don't have that particular brand, but I'm currently soaking them in water with dish soap. Upon closer inspection, they're greasy as fuck. Don't know if this will be enough.
>>
From what I've heard you don't want to macerate fish bones because their skeleton is too flimsy. Fish bones are completely different than birds, reptiles, etc.

Also my friend tried macerating a salmon one time and literally the whole thing turned into soup... go about a different way, submersion is probably not the best.
>>
>>2159909
I'm open to suggestions, any other methods I can try?
>>
>>2159909
that's really cool, i had no idea fish did that

maybe just drying it in a bag with salt and borax would work
>>
>>2159900
Dawn is just my preferred brand buy any 'grease removing' dish soap should do.
If its THAT greasy, change out the water when it gets too muky. You will also want to do this outside because it's going to smell if it's that bad.

If you have the money you can buy a tannery degreaser. I have one from McKenzie's and it takes any where from 10 minutes to an hour. Dish soap is just the cheap and easy way to go, only it takes longer.

The jaws will be fine. They are thicker and stronger than your average fish because they have to be. Putting them in water will not harm them in the slightest.

>>2159944
No. Grease will still seep out and smell even more horrible. Don't dry dead things in a sealed bag or container either. I learned that the hard way.
