    Elegant Beauty/Antler Marrow

    I save all my antler marrow cuttings from drilling through the antler for the brass tube installation.

    Attach the marrow cuttings to brass tubes, cast in Polyester Resin, turn down, sand to 400x. buff with super fine steel wool and polish with Hut Ultra Gloss.

    The kit plating is Black Titanium/Platinum.

    I tried CA, didn't work well, it looked "caked" on. Shhhh... but I tried Tightbond, but it didn't hold up well. I was thinking of trying it like an inlay...little material, little CA, little accelerator from a distance, see how that works up.
