Hey everyone. I pulled a skull out of degreasing the other night, it has been drying and I am noticing that the antler burrs are real soft and crumbly. You can use your fingernail and cut right into them. I have a feeling this is because of boiling with salsoda. Any ideas on how to fix, spray with a little sealer? Also the tops of the burrs as they dry are getting very white and faded, from the boil I assume. I need to stain but what color/brand to use is beyond me. Any one ever had luck staining that can offer some advice?
