Brush-On, Wipe-Off Antler Paint Instructions:

Brush-On, Wipe-Off Antler Paints are concentrated and a little will go a long way. Once you are ready to paint a reproduction or a repaired antler, the Antler Paint must be thinned. Antler Paint can be thinned with water, rubbing alcohol, lacquer thinner or mineral spirits.

Antler Paint colors can be mixed with each other to achieve the correct color and tint. When mixing or thinning use separate containers.

The use of a fan when applying the thinned Antler Paint on the antlers will aid in the drying and also help in ventilation.

Apply the Antler Paint with a brush and move the paint over the antlers like you would if you were staining a piece of wood, controlling the excess to a minimum will give you better results and less waste.

During the drying process a light wiping with a cotton towel will bring the texture of the antlers out. Steel wool can be used to highlight antler tips and bring out the texture on the main beams of the antlers once dried. A second brushing with a dry brush can darken areas that were over-lightened or just to add depth.

Once the Antler Paint dries it will have a flat look, if it has a shiny look then you have too much paint and not enough tint. If you are not satisfied with the color or tint and wish to redo the job you can use hot water to wash the Antler Paint off, dry the antlers and start over.

Antler Paints require a sealer once your are happy with the finished product. We recommend a clear matte finish. Generally about two light coats of the sealer will finish the job.
