Submitted by dwl on 1/4/02. ( ) 168.178.126.116

I have a elk to mount that 20" of main beam and two points are missing how do I cast from a similar elk, what materials do I use and how to attach and stain to blend in with rest of antler? thank you for your input.

If you don't want to just manually sculpt one with Apoxie..

(non-paintable) silicone works pretty well as a mold, made rigid
with some Bondo..
I'd use a little PAM as a release agent.....
pour in some Fantastic cast or comparable casting agent....
stick a heavy gauge wire in before it kicks.....you're golden!
Blend and feather your edge with Apoxie Sculpt....
use an antler stain of your choice.....
on a scale of difficulty of 1 to 5.....1 for a Pro..3 for an ameteur..
5 for Forest Gump
