    Anyone ever dip a deer skull?

    I would love to dip a couple of european mounts but not sure how to. Any advice or pics? I tried the search function but keep getting "skull camo" pattern posts.

    Contact Mike Cole @ Oregon HydroGraphics....I know he did one or two last year. Do a seach on the membership, or just go to the "K & K Archery" thread in Gen. Archery or Manufaturer sections....He has been posting there.

    You will want to actually have the back of the skull hit the water first and then, its kinda hard to explain, but you want to roll the skull into the ink in one motion. I tell you what, go to you www.3dliquidskins.com and scroll down to the bottom of the page, there you will see a video of the skull dipping. That's how I learned to dip mine. Also, if those horns are real knotty you will want to tape the horns, if you don't want to have the horns dipped. That ink is kinda hard to get off of the bases!!!!
