How to Care for Your Scrimshaw
Your scrimshaw is etched or engraved, and the design brought out by rubbing India ink into the recesses of the design. Care must be taken not to get it wet or abrade it. A coat of clear enamel is put items subject to extra wear. Do not rub the surface of scrimshaw if it gets wet.
