Finish on Antlers

Sorry, I have never heard of your fingernail polish method. I use a Grumbacher laquer spray or you can use an acrylic sealer spray. I use a matt finish. If this is to shinny for you, you can dull it down by rubbing it a little with steel wool. It has worked for me and my customers love it. It also helps protect the rack from dirt and smoke or whatever might come along. I'm sure there are other good ideas out there, but this has worked for me. Good luck Ryan.

You should never,NEVER put any type of sealer on antlers! Just put a little funiture polish on a rag and wipe them down.

I wouln't use the furniture polish either...go natural.

Fingernail polish yellows, cracks and gets brittle with age and the elements. I wouldn't use it on anything but your fingernails....well...you might not even want to do that!

I use boiled lenceed oil it brings out the natural colar in the antlers and makes them look more realistic and not shiney and fake.
