I was doing some major cleaning on my shells and I thought I seen something on protecting the inside of the shell with something. Anyone know what I'm talking about?
Thanks

Pearl shells are dusted with a sealer so there's no need to add anything yourself.

I wasn't for sure but I thought I'd seen a thread were someone was using a petrolem based product to protect and to keep moisture off of the bare wood? Never heard of it? Just wanted to see if this was true or not
Thanks Gene

fred, besides what gene said about the inside of the shells being dusted with a sealer, in the HC/sms process when the plies are put into the cylinder, with adhesive on them, and it is heated up and compressed, whereby the adhesive nearly reaches its boiling point and permeates the pores of the wood becoming one with the wood( possibly called the curing process), it seems like there would be no need to apply anything else to the inside of the shell.
