Re: My first scratchboard, Blue Jay

= 5 Thumbs Up! It seems like you have taken to the medium quite well.

Do you have some previous experience using pen and ink? I found that scratchboard felt a lot like pen and ink to me but with white ink on black paper. It was an easy transition from scratchboard to intaglio for me also.

I haven't done any scratchboard for years. I need to try some soon.

Re: My first scratchboard, Blue Jay

Thank you contumacious I've done a lot of work in pencil before, a little bit in pen as well. I wasn't sure how I'd go with scratchboard but I enjoyed it a lot and will definitely be doing more.
