Repairing deep divot in scratchboard
Well, hopefully some scratchboarder out there is as clumsy as I am. I finished a very nice commission, and on the way to the printer (to have gicl'ees made) I SHUT IT IN THE CAR DOOR. Sigh - clumsy doesn't even begin to describe me. I have contacted Dana at Ampersand and he is graciously sending some slurry to me in the next day or so. My question is: what is the best method to clean the area around the divot, apply the slurry, and then reink the area? Luckily the "divot' is only an eye contact size depression and not in a scratched area...so no rescratching will be necessary. And, I do have an airbrush to reapply the ink once I get the divot repaired. OK, masters....help!
