Using fake teeth in my boar mounts!
Ok, i cleaned them up too much (it seems).
How do i get the tusks to look dirty again without ruining the teeth?
This is worring me.

Tell them to take a hike. In 5 or 6 years, those same people will be back complaining that you used the REAL teeth. Real teeth ultimately crack where artificial tusks and whets don't.

You can make these teeth look worn and dirty by taking a bit of dark wood stain and streaking the teeth with it. Don't wipe it off, just let it set there and dry out. Then coat with a clear sealer.

thanks george
