Hi there, I'm making a red deer antler thumb stick. As you can see, the antler (click for image)is a yellowish/green colour. Some people might prefer this but I'd like to get it whiter and would also welcome any recommendations as to how to give it the best possible finish. Many thanks

Is that the best bit of antler that you can get? Sorry but you can't make a silk purse out of a sows ear! I'm sure that someone on here could supply you with a nice bit of Scottish red antler or any sika antler which has beautiful colour and texture to it.

I've used green scouring pads and water to clean gunk off antler in the past. By adjusting pressure you can decide on final colour/finish.
