Scratchboard Goodness.

I wrote a post awhile ago about looking through old artwork and reminiscing through these works. After viewing these pieces from long ago, I realized how much I loved doing scratchboards. So much, I decided it was about time to jump back on the wagon and try again. The art of scratching is one that requires patience and a steady hand, both of which I have some difficulty achieving at times. Well, I hunkered down and went to work. My most recent adventure in scratching brought out my love again, wanting me to create more. And so, Fringe was created.

Fringe; 6×6, Ampersand Claybord.

  1. The colors give this an antique look. I don’t think I’d done stratchboard in at least 15 years. 🙂

    • I used to do them all the time, and then wound up slacking off for about 8 or so years.. I missed doing them so much! I have a stock of fresh boards ready to go. 🙂

  2. These are great – glad you reived this art form! =D

    • Thank you, I missed doing them! I will be working on another one in the near future, so keep your eyes peeled!
