    You can get it from any chemist. It can come in a pill style or crystals. Add water to make a paste. I've stained other items with it, never antlers, but it does tend to wear off after a while.

    I get mine from a chemist and mix with water but not to a paste, I just put water enough to dissolve the chrystals so roughly 4oz of water to a teaspoon heaped full of chrystals.
    Then paint it on with a small paint brush, the liquid will look purple but it actually burns the bone brown when left on.
    Keep applying until you have the colour desired then buff with a stiff scrubbing brush.

    I got mine from chemists in 2oz jars, I haven't bought any for a long time but I think it was only a couple of quid.
