Painting? Deer Hair

Submitted by HNJ on 12/8/99. ( )

I recently sold a hair-on deer hide to a gentleman. He plans to use it to make some sort of Mountain-man garb. A question he had was how could he paint, dye, stain, or whatever will work, a design on the hair side of the hide. He said it would have to be permanent, flexible, and durable. I didnít have any for sure methods, but said I would check with the pros and see if they had any ideas. Thanks for any suggestions or methods you have.

maybe peroxide?

Maybe if you bleach the design into the hair it'll take a color stain. I've never heard of anyone doing it, that's just a guess.
