You're not going to hurt the antler.

Re: paint on antlers

You shouldn't hurt the antler. Depending on what paint it is, you may be able to wipe it off with Windex.

Re: paint on antlers

If it is a latex paint made with a soft polymer hot water should take it off with no problem just put someone washcloth the hotter the better most polymers are soft melodies because of the VOC regulations that are used in paint

I'm asuming he just didnt cover it and was in a hurry. But he had to see it. I wont go back and he had good references.

Re: paint on antlers

i can see being mad about the paint...


being mad about 14 months?? for quality work i wouldnt be upset about that wait...i love seeing mounts done in quick time...especially a year or 2 after they are done...my buddies take stuff to ohio...half the price and really quick on deer mounts...couple months or so..and let me tell ya...it looks like it! especially when they start drying out, hide seperating, staples and pins and sewing as visible as anything...not my critters...sadly when i am at their house i do have to look at them...the thoughts that go through my head as i stare at their slap job mounts lol..
