Hi guys I bought some Danish oil to apply to my set of antlers  but I was wondering if there's a method to using it? Or should I just be rubbing it on with a rag?

It is the very best product for the job. Actually a stain rather than an oil. Just paint it on, one coat not too heavy.  I sometimes use Tung oil but Danish is better.

I have a set of antlers shot in hard velvet, stripped and stained. However, I desperately want to achieve a natural, polished feel to the antlers because I really dislike the dry chalky feel they have about them. I have sanded them and even spent time rubning them with green branches but they still feel almost weathered. Will danish oil help at all? The antlers feel like they could do with some moisture inside them if that makes sense?

I also want to avoid adding any unnatural shine to them...
