Anyone experienced with working with animal bone?
I bought some coyote knucklebones and teeth at a flea market, with the holes already drilled in them so they could be strung, but I stupidly forgot to ask if they were coated, or should be coated, in any way. I'm wondering if there's something I should coat them with to make sure they don't get brittle and break. They feel pretty smooth right now, and not porous, so does that mean they're already coated?

Ugh, I would love to know the answer to this as well! I'm buying some bones for a jewelry project and don't know how to treat them. Sad

They will probably be fine as they are, but a little varnishing won't hurt.
