    I have a very old Indian made bark model.
    The bark and the lashings (split spruce root) are very dry and brittle.
    How can I restore some moisture to this without damaging it?
    Can I soak it in water or is there a better alternative?

    Thanks Peter. I never noticed that link squirreled away on his contact page. Tung oil....hm. Interesting. I never would have considered that.
