10% Off Ampersand Scratchboards
Scratchbord is a clayboard panel that has been coated with India ink. Comparable to traditional paper scratchboard, except better – it is more durable and easier to scratch into for cleaner and crisper details and lines. For added dimension, colored inks can be added to the white areas and then scratched again for additional highlights and volume. Artwork can be finished with a non-yellowing spray varnish to allow framing without glass.

Ink, The Versitile Medium
Ink has been revitalised as an artists medium in recent times with the uses for ink ranging from painting, airbrushing and design work to the more traditional pursuits of sketching, calligraphy, writing and embellishment.
Ink, Very Complimentary
Inks are also the perfect complimentary medium. Ink is often used for a wide range of activities as diverse as tinting gesso, to enhancing watercolours, to creating mixed media works.
Ink, Blurring Boundaries
With the advent of acrylic based inks the boundaries between traditional ink, liquid acrylics and airbrush paints has blurred.
However an artists ink can generally be decscribed as a very liquid, free flowing and highly pigmented medium.
