I've been gifted a muskox skull that had been buried for a couple months to deflesh. Tragically, it didn't appreciate that treatment and the horns are flaking pretty bad (see photos). Does anyone have advice on how to restore these? From perusing the forum, it looks like filling with epoxy and/or sanding is common advice but i'm not sure what's best with this level of damage. I'd like to avoid 'covering them up' with paints and epoxies as much as possible and am ok with a bit of natural roughness. Also, I've discovered that the horns are not at all easy to get off (as people on this forum have said of muskoxen) so any treatments will have to be applied with horns attached to the skull. I would love to just sand them or something but i don't know if i would just sand it down to nothing before it looks half decent. Also, the skull itself is dirty and has some moldy spots. So far I've just hosed it off but it's been dry for about a month and doesn't stink or anything. I have a number of other skulls that have all have turned out wonderfully with a little scrub and bleach soak but this one seems more delicate. Also, I need a solution for the skull that won't further damage the horns that don't come off. Any advice would be much appreciated! Thanks!
