I have one skull (of course the largest buck I've done a European mount with) that developed a "grease spot". Short of painting the skull, anybody know of a way to get rid this?

Did you seal it with anything? If not, degrease it. Dish soap and hot water works but acetone works better.

Rub ultra concentrate dish soap on the spot with dish washing sponge. Let it sit for little bit (don’t let it dry out) and rinse it off. You will probably have to repeat this several times, depends how bad it is.

I tried Dawn....maybe I need to keep on trying. I didn't let it sit, just scrubbed. I'll try your method.

No sealer...is nail polish remover (the type w/ acetone) ok, or do I need something stronger?

If that isn’t working for you, you can reboil with dish soap or any grease cutting agent. Not a rolling boil, more of a simmer. Keep the antlers out of the water.

if you boil / simmer a skull to long it will crack.

If you don't add soap the first time you boil, you'll get a nice broth for soup!
