Still experimenting with a blotched ink background, this time I used a red base, which resulted in a pink-ish etching. To see all the iterations of this piece and the many layers of ink application, see my art blog here: http://emerlyearts.blogspot.com/2014/06/reds-white-clayboard-engraving.html

The colors make it looks as though it is a precious vintage piece.

Your work is simply exquisite.
The thick layering of ink is working quite well in giving the engraving a beautiful tinted character. Sometime back I did a buffalo on white board using a similar method. It was my first white board. I added in black ink for the buffalo itself and scratched it into the color. Experimentation is grand.
