I spotted an antler carved like an eagles head today. i was volunteering at the local thrift store. I bought it b/c I noticed my husband is always picking up antlers on our property. he liked it so I went hunting to learn about it. I found you. Can you tell me anything? about carving? how to treat it? It has some kind of stain or latex on it I started to rub off. what about eyes? ??? I will try and upload 2 pictures i took of it. i am super interested in this b/c I am an artist but the only sculpting work I have ever done was as a dentist creating teeth for my patients. thanks mary

Well in my opinion..

 

..If it is real antler, then is will be fine how it is. the latex stuff coming off sounds like cheapo varnish...don't leave it where it will get humid and don't leave it in the hot sun.

 

maybe an expert can give better advice? I only have carved small pieces of antler and never had to deal with cracking or splitting.
