Scratchboard Art

scratchboard art, watercolor toning

I did a scratchboard art, and it’s pretty fun. I had the Ampersand clayboard kind, and I used my leftover india black ink by Higgins and coated a black layer on top. And using some sharp tools, I scratched the surface away. If you happen to mess up, you can reapply ink or white gouache, when it’s dried. It’s pretty darn messy, I’d get some newspaper and put it underneath with all the dust that comes off. I copied and printed onto a watercolor paper, but I don’t think the laser inkjet was very good because I lost detail and also it started to turn greyish. :\ Well, I had fun with it anyway. I’ll probably do more scratchboard art when I have time….
