Can you draw on a scratchboard?
Some artists prefer to lightly sketch the outline of their drawing with an art pencil, then use a scraper board cutter to create fine line details and complete their artwork. To add colour, we recommend using a colour pencil or paint with a fine tip brush. The option is up to you, get creative with it and see what works for your designs.
How is scratchboard art done?
Artists use a scraper tool to scratch the black india ink layer off the surface to create detailed white lines. It’s considered the process of engraving, where a design is cut through the surface. Artists will use scraper tools to create small, fine lines that eventually create an image.
What can I use for a scratchboard?
