I have a couple of fish heads that have been sun dried. They still have
skin and it isn't going to decay off. I can't bring them in the house
because they have a slight permanent odor. Any suggestions on how I can
treat them so they still look the same but are sealed from further decay
and odor? I don't want to put them in formalin or alcohol. I want to be
able to handle them dry.
