Nancy, I did it lifting lobsters out of a tank. Long story

On the spray, a lot of guys in the States use 'Golden'

Ooh! Sorry to hear about your injury Patrick. Just as well you are giving it away soon to concentrate on lighter things. BTW - what sort of spray do you use in Oz please!

OW Patrick...I feel for you...take care!

Nancy...I use Krylon...despite any problems, I still like it best. Just don't try to rush it...spray several light coats instead of one heavy one. Have the board standing almost straight up and down to do it, then lay it flat to dry. My favorites are UVresistent Matte and Satin or Kamar Varnish if you like a bit of shine. Be sure to dust the board before you spray.

Rick- Golden Art

Thank you for your answer about covering the deeper parts with thicker spray.
I will try your suggestion and I will be careful to spray the whole board evenly.
I figured there must be an answer, someone here always has the answer to some problem we encounter. The thing is the ink layer is so sensitive and I end up making a good scratching job and then.... wham... .get hit with an awful spray job. I will leave it for 24 hours as you suggested to let it dry well. Thanks again.
Gail

Wow, Cathy, that is FANTASTIC! Congrats! All the better 'cause it's a tough time for art sales. All four boards are gorgeous.

Sorry about your pinched nerve, Patrick. Hope you're feeling less pinchy soon!

Re: Scratchy Corner 18th - 24th April 2011

I'm thinking about buying the Ampersand tool kit for scratchbord tomorrow when we go to Virginia. Actually, I'd like to just buy the fiberglass and line tools, but if I have to get the whole kit I guess I could. While I'm at it I think Ill also buy some more scrachbords too since Jerry's Artarama still has them on sale! I'll look for some more finishing spray too. First time going there and not coming out with some pencils, weird.

Nancy...if you're thinking of trying Krylon, it's cheaper at Walmart and some places like Home Depot, than at art stores. Only buy the tool kit if you think you'll use the tools in it...there's one wire thing in there that I have yet found a use for. I get my individual tools online from Blick's (line tool) and MicroMarks (some blades and the tiny fiberglass brush ).
Have fun shopping!
