If what you are trying to acomplish is blending a fake tine into a real set of antlers try this. Paint the rebuilt antler the lightest color you see on the set.( should be a light beige of cream colored }
Then with the darker colors of the rack ( brown and redish ) rub the darker colors on with a paper towel on the higher bumps of the antler leaving the lighter color streaked from underneath. Keep playing with the colors until it blends in. I would use a water based paint so you can take it off if it dosn't the firse time. LOL


Best Stain

The best stain I have found for antler repair, especially when using the apoxy is sold by [a supply company]. It is excellent and very inexpensive.
I have been doing taxidermy for 30 years and this is the best product I have found for staining over the expoxy. Hope this helps you and definitely give it a try. It is a powder that you mix with water or rubbing alcohol, the full instructions are in his catalog too. Tom
