    Saw on here the other day a mixture of i believe was turpentine and maybe linseed oil to put on on wt antlers.Ive looked and can't find it.For some reason i cant get into the archives.If anyone can help jog my memory thanks.
  2. I just use Scotts Liquid Gold. Get it at Wal-Mart. I assume you are wanting to know this for "shining" them up

    The 50/50 mix works great on hard, dried seasoned antler, but don't put it on fresh antler, it will turn it yellow from the linseed oil. I use it the day before the mount goes home, I dab it on the antler with a big cotton ball, then remove the excess with paper towel. The next day it is ready to go home.

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

    Spray some Pledge Furniture Polish on a shop rag or towel, and apply it to the antlers. Give them a good rub and polish. This gives them a nice luster without going unnaturally shiny!
