I have been lurking here for a couple of weeks or so, absolutely captivated by the stunning and beautiful work you create. I am an absolute total novice (and have no art training), so please forgive me asking such an elementary question.
Since I hope to start my first scratch in the near future, my first question is...do most of you transfer your image to scratchboard using a black graphite paper? I know Cathy mentioned that in the tutorial in the Animals/Wildlife section (which I thought was a superb and very helpful intro, by the way!
). I have seen WIPs and other tutorials where people use such things as white charcoal pencil? I know there's always individual preference - but just curious what you all use to transfer to board, presuming the substance comes off fairly easily.
Thanks so much!
