Day 209. Scratchboard Bird

25 Jul

Today I tried a Scratchboard for the first time. I stumbled across this fun board at my local Asel Art Store a couple of days ago, but just got around to trying it out. With a Scratchboard, you start with a black clay board and scratch away lines to reveal the white board below the black clay surface. For me the process was meditative and relaxing. A perfect bedtime exercise. Enjoy.
