mornin' all ,
good looking bones.now i am not an artist by no stretch of the imagination, as you can see from the pics on the other thread '' WINGBONE PICS''. but i'm sure some of you fellers are highly talented in this area .
i found that ink will soak and spread out through the porous bone. i put the words and tracks on the two larger bones with a lead pencil,,,then covered the small bone and sprayed the two bigger ones with polyurethane varnish. after the varnish dried i went over the pencil work with a fine pointed permanent marker. let it dry a while and gave it another coat of varnish.
also i used 'ELMERS CARPENTER GLUE '' to assemble the bones . just so happens that it matches the bone color perfectly. also i used the recipe for biulding the call from ''BILL HOLLISTER'' , as found in the hardback book on turkey hunting , put out by the ''NORTH AMERICAN HUNTING CLUB '' . HOPE THIS WILL HELP SOMEONE.
