    potassium permanganate will stain, you may be thinking of hydrogen peroxide which is used for bleaching skulls. (and fingers if you're not careful)

    Yeah that's the point. Its a purple colour but stains brown and looks very real once on the antlers. More coats or more intense the mix the darker it stains. Better than the tea and coffee mix I used once!
