Said I would try all media for the ACEO's - so here is my "Scratchboard" version.

What a cute panda! How thick is the scratchboard? Will it fit in the sleeves ppl store them in?

That's a really cute Panda, and the first scratchboard ACEO we've had to the best of my knowledge. Like Robin, I would love to know the thickness of the scratchboard, and can you buy little panels this size, or do you cut them yourself? Very interesting concept for ATC/ACEOs.

The scratchboard is a sheet I bought years ago and found in the drawer.
I just cut it myself, it's no thicker than regular cardstock would be or similar thickness to 140 W/c paper.
Finally got to the flea market today and found the clear sleeves. Took the ACEO's with me to make sure they fit. Yes, they fit !!!!!
Also I have been mounting my work on matboard cause I really like the feel of it. And yes they fit in the sleeve with the matboard attached.

Good to see a scratchboard drawing and such a nice one!:clap: :clap: :clap:
I've done scratchboard in the past and located a hunk of the board and my scratchtools recently. Hoping to do a couple of minis with it.

He is so dang cute! Hooray on the sleeve find! So far I've only done, watercolor and acrylic. Thinking bout prisma pencils, they are just so time consuming. I have to admit I like the quikness of painting these little guys. Hmmm, you never know till ya try! Great job on the Panda!! janine

Thanks Bertoni, Thanks Janine...
They certainly are addictive - just finished another scratchboard, will post it tomorrow.

Excellent idea...very nifty panda:clap:

How do you mount your ACEOs on matboard? I always use 140# wc paper and would like to "stabilize" it but am afraid of ruining the painting.

I tried using the spray adhesive but it wasn't holding too well. But Now I find that the matt medium from my acrylics is a wonderful solution to the problem, holds better than superglue !!! I just put a drop on the matt board and rub it around with my finger. Then I put the artwork on (whether it be w/c paper, scratchboard paper or canvas paper) and use my brayer - not a bad idea to weight it down with some books for a little while also.
