After some small detailing, I rub the surface with some paper towels to get any surface oil off the horn. After that I used a water based alkaline dye that I mix and wipe it on the horn, allowing it to dry.
*** Be sure you have used a Waterproof India Ink in your scrimshawing ***
I then rubbed out most of the color to get an to amber tone. Then several applications of Paste Wax. This seals the horn and fills in the lines and actually cleans and sharpens the inked lines. Some buffing and we’re done!
Question? Rit close dye? If so what color?
