    Need a good method . Freeze drying not a option and staying away from formaldehyde. I’ve used knoblochs velvet tan seemed to work but felt kind of matted , any other better methods ? Does velvalock work and on soft velvet ?

    Joey has a method of soaking with acetone that he has used for years. Do a search in the archives and you should find his instructions. I’ve used the paint on “velvet tan” with good results, especially on antlers that are nearly hardened. It can be painted on and/or injected. The hair does stiffen up some, but I think that will be the case on nearly any method you use. Unlike Joey, I have not had as much experience doing velvet, only a half dozen or so, but the results have been good.

    I've used a combo of knoblocks velvet tan, injected and denatured alcohol, brushed on. Worked good on velvet caribou antlers.
