Re: Helpful Tools, Tricks and Techniques

the address at the top is no longer good. Here is the basic one:
http://www.micromark.com/
They have all kinds of good stuff, including weird sanding stick-type thingys that may make some real good texture.

Re: Helpful Tools, Tricks and Techniques

Ampersand's recommendations for sealing:

http://ampersandartsupply.blogspot.c...m_medium=email

The link discusses all their boards/various mediums.

Here is what they say about Scratchbord:

"Sealing Scratchbord™ (formerly Claybord Black)

Seal finished Scratchbord™ art with a spray fixative like Krylon® UV Resistant Clear Coating or use the Krylon® UV Archival Spray Varnish. The fixative [or spray varnish] will dissolve fingerprints or smudges and will protect the surface from dirt and moisture. For best results, first remove all loose dust and debris from the surface with a soft brush. Then, spray with 2 - 3 coats [as directed on can] in a warm, well ventilated environment during low humidity."

Re: Helpful Tools, Tricks and Techniques

Questions about framing continue to come up here and on Facebook, so I'm compiling a list of links where it's been discussed.

Re: Helpful Tools, Tricks and Techniques

There was a huge discussion of spraying boards on the Facebook page, thought it would be worth posting a link here:
