My 6 year old found some antlers in the bush. Does anyone know what's the best way to clean these up then paint or stain them? Assume there is a product like tine stain??!! Thanks

I cleaned one up as a kid using black shoe polish (from the round tins), then sanded the tips white again. Looked pretty mean!. Brown would maybe work just as wellif you're looking for a more realistic colour..  Huh

I once heard that a water mix with potassium permanginate cystals would do the job. Initially would look really red stained but would slowly fade back to a nice rich brown colour. I should try it myself before offering it for Winkward.
  

be good...And careful
