One more thing
I used to do a lot of scratchboards when I was younger, and I found one of em in a drawer tonight so I figured I'd scan it.


I quit doing them because my elbow locked up and I had to keep it in a sling for 2 weeks from the strain of scratching in such tight strokes. I never did one again since that incident..but you can't live in fear and being an artist, I have to expect a little pain for pleasure.

They're fun to do, but time consuming. I think I might take them up again, but we'll see. I need to find my retractable X-acto knife..it was my favorite and I feel more comfortable with it =)

I love doing scratchboard. That's a lovely piece. Why not get some larger board, would that help your arm? Also, make sure you get good quality claybord. I find that making scratches on the cheap papers strains my arm faster. Nice smooooth claybord, num.
