Moose Poop for Jewellery
Moose Poop to Make Jewellery
Anyone out there know the best way to 'preserve' the moose nuggets for jewellery making, etc? I have read everything from hair spray to shellac... Thanks!
That's a new one on me Judy!
Certainly moose poop is used to make all kinds of jewellery. I saw some in Niagara Falls earlier this year when I was traveling. There were earrings, pendants and charms all made from moose poop.
I would think that moose poop itself once dried is fairly solid but would not stand up to the wear and tear of being worn as moose poop jewellery.
I think you are right-on with a clear shellac or clear lacquer coating if you are trying to preserve the natural look. I really don't think that hairspray would give a strong enough coating.
Otherwise you might look at some of the fiberglass resin or epoxy coatings as alternatives. These would be exceptionally strong as compared to just a lacquer or shellac covering.
Good luck with your moose poop jewellery. If you do make some, please come back and share some pictures. We might even have a market for you here!
