Scraperboard Class Prep

Scraperboard is an ink-covered card, with a surface which can be scraped away using fine, sharp tools to creat an effect similar to that of a wood-engraving. This engraving style image can be created fairly quickly and is lots of fun to do. You can build up a range of tones and textures with dots, squiggles and hatching and experiment with unconventional tools to create marks!  It is even possible to make your own coloured version of the medium, with your own design underneath the black inky surface!
