Scratchboard updates

Just a quick update. I worked a bit more on this fellow. I'm working on getting the iridescence in, but there is more scratching and coloring to do.


I also worked on the hippo, but he looks like I'm just repeating over and over again, altho I can see some progress. It is difficult to get the inks smoothed out without streaks.

You have the patience of a saint Carole - wonderful work. I have tried scratch board a couple of times and am so fascinated by it, but boy it takes some patience!!! :)

Thanks Karen. I also am fascinated and challenged by it and love the extremes of value you get with it. But, boy, that hippo is just a "bugger"! LOL.
