So, I would recommend not doing them all at once. The texture is very rough, so just practice on a few at first. Also, I had to buy two pens for the 45 that I did. Since the texture of the sanddollar is rough, it's going to use up a lot of the pen's point. Just be careful as you are writing because they can easily start to crack. I didn't seal them with anything.
