A friend of SWMBO has asked me to cut out some pieces of horn from a steer horn, a bracelet (ring cut through the horn) and several approximately 3/4" squares of the horn for her to use in making some jewelry.
Cutting the bits out has been straight forward, and polishing out the cut marks has also been easy using sand paper and scotchbrite pads.
My question is what might be used to give a brighter, shiny finish to the horn. LOML has suggested linseed oil, I countered with clear finger nail polish, but I don't either are good options. Any thoughts and/or experience on this.
