Surprisingly nice alternative material. The surface is easily workable for scrimshaw, retains color inks (I used Higgins Black Magic & Faber-Castell Pitt). Easy to wipe off excess ink. I sealed with Renaissance Wax prior to inking, and final polish/sealed. Good color similar to ivory. Saws and files easily.
