>>After the India ink, a quick dip in Bouin's helps to fix the ink
Widely done, though I've never found it helped much - it's much more
important to blot the specimen thoroughly dry before inking it.
Bouin's fixative is messy and has environmental hazards. Acetone -
major fire hazard - is sometimes used after inking also. Supposedly 2%
acetic acid (white vinegar diluted about half and half) works quite as
well and is not hazardous, but I've never tried it.
