Presenter: Donna Schwarz
Get ready to complete your first scratchboard art piece with Donna Schwarz. Scratchboard or scraperboard refers to both a medium, and an illustrative technique using sharp knives and tools for etching into a thin layer of white China clay that is coated with black India ink. Scratchboard can be used to yield highly detailed, precise and evenly textured artwork.
You will need to purchase a scratchboard (nominally priced) and a pen so that you can work along with her (more details later). You will have a piece ready to varnish by the end of the demo.
