staining teeth on flehman mouthpiece

Submitted by trt on 02/26/2004 at 09:56. ( )

i'm trying my first flehman mount and you're supposed to use burnt umber oil paint to stain the teeth, or at least that's how Joe Meder does it. i couldn't find the paint, so i was wandering if i could use like a wood stain to stain inbetween the teeth? or if you have any other suggestions on staining teeth, it would be greatly appreciated. thanks!

Burnt Umber is a standard oil artist paint.

..."wander" out to the art store, or even the art department/crafts in Walmart. By the way, I use lacquers I already have on hand, in case you were also wondering...

I just used an airbrush

I just painted burnt umber between the teeth and wiped the teeth with thinner, the brown stays behind in between the teeth.
