I am a furniture conservation student and am doing a research paper
into horn, both as a veneer and as used in lanterns. For this paper
I have to process the horn the traditional way; this is were i get
stuck. I am having trouble flattening the horn. I am trying the many
different ways that some of the old books say but they don't seem to
work. I wonder is it because I am using Irish cows horn? If anyone
out there has worked with horn before, your help will be very
appreciated. I also need some help on staining the horn to imitate
tortoise shell.
