Best way to age antlers?

Submitted by Carl E on 11/27/2002. ( mtnhntr@msn.com ) 12.13.226.18

Lots in the archives about restoring old antlers, but I have a moose shed that I want to use on a base and I want to make it look old and "bleached out. What would be the best way to do it? Thanks.

leave them out in the weather until you get what you want.

Don't really have the time. The bear is mounted and drying and I'm building the base right now.

Painting it is safest...

peroxide may do the trick - a week or so at 3% like you get anywhere for cuts n scrapes - or 40% from beauty salons... the 40% stuff whitens bones overnight...

Will bleach them out in no time, it did with my deer antlers.
