Any "wood" oil should work fine. Boiled lineseed, Tru Oil.... Elmers glue paints on and dries clear for a seal on the bone.

I went a different route. Went to Walmart and got fabric stuff and found this frame in craft section... Pinterest gave me the idea
My daughter went to pickup the small plaque that will go on. I think it looks good.
