Teotihuacan was a Mayan city in Mesoamerica, near what is now Mexico City. This is a 5x7 board of a mask pendant. I used mostly the tattoo needles with 7 or 9 needles, and then added color, rescratched and repeated several times. Used Ampersand inks and also Holbein watercolors. I may tweak it a bit, but it's mostly finished.

This has such depth, I thought it was a photo of a 3D metal or ceramic piece. Wonderful scratching and great application of color.

Obedec, I have not thought that far ahead. I normally frame all my scratchboards with a white mat and a simple black frame.

Thanks to all for the kind comments and compliments

I keep staring at this piece... it's captivating. How about a bronze or clay worked floating frame?

You are such a master Hector! I get so excited when I see a new Hector board - no two are alike.

Like the color and reflections. What color is it and ink or something else. Great idea for your subject

Cool as can be! Love the forehead area. I like the added black to the crack.

Nelvia, it is several different blends of ampersand green and blue and two different shades of blue watercolors. Thanks for the compliment!
