Re: Scratchboard

I transfer the finished sketch/image to the board. I think many others here do the same, though I believe there are also some who sketch on the board.

Here's the link to a transfer paper discussion from the Helpful Tools, Tricks and Techniques thread:

Re: Scratchboard

I sketch on paper then transfer to the board with Saral or Chaco paper.. When drawing directly on the board it is difficult not to erase the black away when
making corrections.

I always welcome C & C. Even if I have finished it and applied fixative, I can always apply your thoughts to the next one.

Re: Scratchboard

I find a picture and transfer it onto the board with white Chaco paper. Lightly trace my main lines then scratch. If I over scratch I use black ink and a brush and apply a few coats and rescratch again.

Re: Scratchboard

Sketch to size on paper, then transfer. I don't want to put unnecessary dents in the board that might not scratch well.

Re: Scratchboard

sometimes i sketch on the board, using a watercolor pencil, so I can remove the lines easily
