    then dark brown on the base and you can go lighter or darker whatever you like

    then more tie in brown to blend and you can put a satin finish clear to seal i put another set in a pic to show the lighter paint

    i dont want to hijack your thread but i bought a pound of PP and if anyone wants any just shoot me a PM and we can work out the details then. i personally like to use oil and some stains but these do look very good. I have never stained a set of smooth cast antlers .......just real antlers and apoxie fix it. Good work! Someday I am going to replicate some antlers.
