I have just finished cleaning a buddy's skull for him and will be doing a European mount. The only problem is that his buck is a large basket 8-point but at the base of the right side the antler has a small part that extends towards the middle of the forehead and ends with a small bump that is about a half an inch height. To whiten skulls before I have used a solution of 1 part Hydrogen peroxide and 2 parts water, soaking the skulls for about 24 hrs. Can I do the same with the one or do I need to do something different because of the extension of the right side?

If the antler is whitened along with the bone it can easily be stained to match or touched up with some artists oils.
