    If you are trying to use it for wheathered antlers that are white and chalky it is no walk in the park. I just did a set that was found in a creek bed for God knows how long. I was having trouble getting it to look right, so i that I would try to get back the hard enammal look of a heathy antler. I took high gloss white spray paint, painted the whole thing and let it dry. Then I went back with the burnt umber and rubbing alcohol and did a wash technique. It does not look too bad although I am not completly happy. If I was to do it again I would try adding just a shade of camel to the burnt umber.

    They work pretty good. On rebuilt tines, I always start with an airbrush white base coat and then start with the colors and you should be good to go.
