Re: Can you repair a botched scratchboard?
I have found that using black Ampersand Scratchbord Inks can be applied over scratches to soften them. If you use a thick layer of ink, it will cover them up completely but may leave a light smudge. I'm not sure why this is and am about to post a topic regarding that...
After the ink dries, you can scratch over it and the old marks usually get covered up by the new. Once you spray your final piece with fixative, any smudges should largely disappear.
