SCAGLIOLA WORK

24.  SPECTACLE-CASE.

Procure a case made of sycamore wood of proper shape.  Upon this draw the design with a pencil, trace over the pencil-marks with Indian ink and a fine crow-quill; then fill in the ground with Indian ink and a camel’s-hair brush.  After two or three days, varnish with the best picture-varnish.
