If you are interested in European mount, here is a short How to video.

I have a better, 3 step process...
Step 1) Take frozen head to a taxidermist with beetles.
Step 2) Pay the Taxidermist.
Step 3) Display as desired.

Hackidermist...

Ask your taxidermist about his/her process if it's not the following you are wasting your money, go to a professional.

1. Cleaning- Beetles (Maceration is ok... but not preferred)
2. Decreasing- Acetone (some use white gas)
3. Whitening- Peroxide 40vol or better (household doesn't do crap)
4. Preserving- Paraloid B-72

Obviously there are lots of home brew methods that work, but if you are paying someone to do a euro demand best practices.
