Yeah, yeah,another velvet question but here it goes. I have never been completely happy with artificial velvet, either attempted by myself with flocking or professionally sent out, which in my opinion still looks like a flocked set of antlers (almost too perfect). I have tanned a few successfully in the past also (with McKenzie antler tan), but more often than not, I am not able to save them and do not want to give a customer their mount back with an 'iffy' set of antlers. I get a few whitetails, but even more axis deer in velvet. The axis (and others like elk, caribou etc) have longer velvet which more resembles fur. My question is, has anyone ever used something like a very short artificial fur to glue or otherwise to the stripped antler? I know this question might sound silly but I'm looking for a better way for my customers. Thanks, Greg.
