Oil paints and paint thinner are used to colour artifacts. Burnt Umber is the main colour to simulate old ivory. Apply the oil and briefly wait before rubbing off. Paint thinner can remove the colour if incorrect. After drying, a spray lacquer can be used to seal in the colour. A Borden number specifying an archaeological artifact should be added if required.
