  • I have a set of elk antlers and a set of deer antlers that have been sitting in the sun for who knows how long. They are bleache

    I have a set of elk antlers and a set of deer antlers that have been sitting in the sun for who knows how long. They are bleached and I was wondering if there is anything special I should do to fix them up.

    Nope, I think they are permanently white sorry. I've never found anything to bring em back.

      I don't think anything will bring the color back, but any in the future spray them with a clear coat right after cleaning them, this keeps the color from bleaching out.

        I wonder if stain for wood would work to bring some life back to those antlers? Try a light coat at first, then add to areas that you want to darken up. I would suggest trying Minwax Early American stain. I use it in my woodworking and have good results using it for light to dark applications.

          There is actually a compound that will bring them back, but I can't remember what it is. I remember it went on purple and returned the bone to natural color. I've also heard of using good ole WD40. Have you looked on any taxidermy supply sites?
