Helpful Hint

I just got done posting this on another site where a gentleman had a problem with bleached antlers so i thought i,d share it with the nice people here.If you have weathered or bleached antlers around the house or barn,try this.I,ve had this clipping in my wallet for years.I believe it came out of one of the sporting magazines.The response came from Tom Hardesty at Atcheson,Mont.Buy a tube of "burnt umber'Grumbacher oil paint from an art supply store.Squeeze out a 3 inch length of paint and mix with six ounces of oil-based thinner.Use a rag to lightly wipe the thinned paint onto the antlers.Then wipe off.Repeat this process,allowing the paint to dry overnight between applications,until you have the color you want.Allow the antlers to dry overnight a final time and then spray with clear acrylic.For a natural look,remember to leave the tips of the tines stark white on deer or elk racks.Hope this helps everyone.
