    well obviously my reply was not needed,so it was deleted, as i must be all wrong.... ::) its a NO paint technique, but what do i know...I heard if you sit on a horn long enough, it will get a natural sheen... :p
     
  2. I used the black apoxie sculpt and baby powder mixture to repair an addax horn last month and it worked great, i didn't need to do anything else once it dried.

    George The older I get, the better I was.

    Bob, Tom's method was tried and true for decades. Most "flat" paint has unscented talcum powder added to it. Suppliers used to sell unscented talc but I haven't seen any lately. I use it in my lacquer paints to "dull" or flatten them.

    I wasn't saying Tims method was wrong, I was just telling you what I noticed. I didn't know if maybe someone else had noticed the same thing at some point and use it now. ;)

    Why was your reply deleted? I just looked it up in deleted topics (moderators only 8)) and it read fine, and accurate, to me? Hmmm...

    LordRusty If I agreed with you, we'd both be wrong.

    AVES Apoxie Clay is what I use to repair and build up the rough textured African horns. You can color it after applying it, and before it sets. It already has a rough texture and does not dry shiny as the Apoxie Sculpt does. Good luck!
