Re: "Baby Face" WIP (Finished) - Mini Horse

I thought I'd show how I decided to frame this little guy. Initially, I wanted a solid black board to mount it on. I took a 5 x 7 Ampersand gessobord and painted it with black ink, but couldn't get a smooth, solid coat. I tried steel wool on the inked board to fix some of the splotches, but it still didn't work. That's when I decided it was time to invest in an airbrush! But before I even fired up the airbrush, I realized a solid black background wasn't going to work - the left side of the scratchboard got lost when I put it on a piece of black mat as a visual. So I really hit the gessobord with steel wool to give it the look you see here and I'm happy with the result! It's sort of a wood grain appearance and it works well against both the black and white sides of the drawing.

It looks great Ann. Excellent choice of mount, color and floating it. I really like your process when working a board and enjoyed watching you demo it. Do you prefer white boards or black ones.

Re: "Baby Face" WIP (Finished) - Mini Horse

Thank you, Judy & Harold!

Harold, I've done more work on white boards, so I'm more comfortable with my technique on them. But I do enjoy the black boards too - it's nice to have another option available. It depends on the subject really, and how I want to approach it. I feel like I have to think harder when working a black board, because I'm more careful with how I place my scratches.

More like a happy accident, borne of frustration, than an experiment, Patrick, but I'll take it!
