Scratchboard wolf by rah-bop Scratchboard wolf by rah-bop
I recently found some pictures of amazing scratchboard illustration on the internet and felt inspired to try it out, myself. This is my first attempt at scratchboard ever, and I'm so in love with this medium.

Drawing is based on a photograph taken by my boyfriend of a wolf at the local zoo and used with permission.

14"x11" Ampersand scratchboard. Will be for sale at the FC art show next weekend.

Scratchboard is hard and time-consuming but also loads of fun. Great job! c:

This is beautiful!  :w00t:

Could you tell me.. I saw a scratchboard for the first time in the Micheals store yesterday.  What is it?  I mean, how does one work with that.  You just draw on it?  Or do you need to use an exacto knive or something and scratch in it first?  How does one use a scratchboard??

At its most basic level, a scratchboard is a layer of white clay (or wax) coated in a layer of black ink.   You use a sharp implement like an exacto knife, a needle, or even something like steel wool to scrape off the ink to reveal the white clay underneath. It's a reductive process, meaning you make lines by scratching the ink away.  It's really fun! Here's a clip I found on YouTube showing what it looks like in action: youtu.be/0Skw1Gf5NYA
