Trying Something New

This is a scratchboard, a clay covered hard board with a layer of black ink.  When you scratch with a sharp tool you make a white mark. This is something I teach my high school art students every year, but I have never completed a scratchboard myself.  So. . . . .  finally I admitted this to my students.  They challenged me and gave ME a due date.  Mine was late but at least I finished.  I like to draw, so it was a fun project. If anyone is interested in instructions for scratchboard visit my blog (  I posted some instructions for friends and students.
