Weird, silly bodhran question.
I have a cheap Pakistani bodhran that I am using as a light fixture. Probably the best use for this poor excuse for an instrument.
Now the silly question. Is there any way to lighten the skin? The skin doesn’t let enough light through and I’d like to clarify it a bit. Using a brighter bulb isn’t an option. I don’t care if the bodhran becomes unplayable, because it already is. I just don’t want to destroy the skin.
I’ve considered bleach, but don’t know what that would do to the skin.
Any suggestions or ideas are welcome.
