What can I use as a scratchboard?
Generally, anything that can be scratched against without ripping will make for an effective surface. You can use a scratchboard, clayboards, paper and more! We recommend using a professional scratchboard, as the coated india ink and kaolin clay surface will allow for accurate and controlled lines.
Can I use pencil on scratchboards?
Yes! You can use pencil on your scratch art to elevate designs and add extra details. You can sketch out your design with an art pencil and then begin your artwork using a scratching tool. You can also experiment with our colour pencils, pastels and artist paints to create small pops of colour.
