Caribou Antler Repair

Submitted by Kevin on 12/23/99. ( ) 206.129.0.18

I'm doing my first caribou antler repair, this antler was damaged by a bullet. Is Apoxie Sculpt a good material for this job? And will it accept the stain, if so what type of stain should be used?

Kevin,
Apoxie tends not to take stain well. This is true of most of the epoxy putties. Your best bet is to take the white Apoxie and mix in small quantities of black, yellow, and brown until you get a close match to the antler. Then rub the entire antler set with stain and wipe it away. Then take bee's wax and rub all the antlers. Make sure you airbrush any inconsistencies if you absolutely have to before you stain and wax.
