I hand etched a fly fishing motif on this scrimshaw bookmark made from an antique, vintage ivory piano key measuring 7/16" x 3 1/4". It features a fly fisherman in the river and is accented with a lure at the top and finished with a coordinating ribbon.

The outline and shading are etched and inked with black india ink. Next I etch in all areas to be colored and apply permanent, pigmented inks with a fine brush. This ensures that all color is held fast for lasting use.

The final step is to seal it with 2 coats of archival wax to protect the intricate design and enhance the beauty of the ivory.
