Re: Preserving dried velvet on rack
That is what I was thinking, it is hard as tree bark. But it had a real organic odor to it and I didn't want any beetles to get at it. A couple guys at taxidermy.net recommended treating it with Velvet Tan, which I did. Painted it on real heavy once and the odor is gone. Will probaby hit it again for good measure. Taking the rack to my taxidermist today and should have it back in a week or so! Killed the beast on December 24th and will have him on the way first week of February, not a bad turn around...
