Hoping someone may have ideas to help me with a process. I'm using maceration to do skull mounts. I use buckets of water inside a heated room for the maceration. The circulating dry hot air (maybe 100F) is causing the antlers to dry out over the course of maceration (typically around a two week process. This drying is causing them to lose quite a bit of color. I'm currently staining the bases (where i lose color to maceration water), but also having to stain entire antler (due to loss of color in heated room). I'm wondering if there's a better way to bring life back into the antlers besides staining the entire thing? I've read where a 50/50 mix of linseed-turpentine may be an option... but also read where it can yellow over time. Any thoughts would be appreciated!!!
