Scratchboard Demo at Highlands Artist Guild
August 16, 2014 @ 1:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Ann will give a scratchboard demo at Highlands Artist Guild‘s monthly meeting.
Free to the public.
Sometimes called “the art of taking away”, scratchboard is a medium that allows for amazing detail, but is also surprisingly forgiving and versatile. Ann will demonstrate her technique for working on scratchboard. She primarily uses an X-Acto knife, but any abrasive object can be used to remove the black ink from the board to reveal the white coating beneath. Ink can be added and re-scratched, allowing for softness and a range of tones to enhance the detail. Color can also be added to the scratched areas of the board.
