I thought I would try to do the scratchboard cat. Here it is.  When using the exato knife it riped my paper  and I was not pressing very hard.

Well done Danielle  :clap: :clap: :clap:

That's what I thought would happen Danielle. I'll be buying up some of the Ampersand scratchboards before I go back. I did buy a cheap pack of 10 sheets of 'scratchboard' to use for practice. They feel like thin shirt cardboard so I've no idea how well they'll work. Only one way to find out...
Cheers, Val

Danielle,

Meow!!  Great scratchboard cat.  How did you fix the paper?

I'm going to have to try this some day.

 :thankyou: Mea, Val, and Sherri for the encouragement. 
Mea it was ripping but not all the way, so I have put some white out.
The paper looked like it was made of paper, foil, paris plaster and ink.  And i went all the way through the silver.

Beautifully done Danielle!

Something was really bothered me with the jaw angle on mine... when I compared it with yours, I immediately saw the problem, the reflection on mine is too 'broad and heaven'...

I managed with lots of snuggle to get one board of Ampersand.  It was very nice to work with, of course I have nothing to compare, but I have no problem.   I ordered a couple more boards and finally got an email today that they are ready to pick up.

Cheers, Annie

Val, you would be wise to get some in TO before you leave.  I am by no way on a small city... and only one store had one board.  It took 6 weeks to get my little order in.

Alternatively, put in a web order to Blicks if you have a US address for delivery.   

Prefers to be patriotic and buy Canadian and pay the premium... but they have to deliver.   >:(

looks great Danielle.
The foil scratchboards are not as good as the regular ones. I recommend using the Essdee brand

I use the Essie brand and really like them. I bought a couple of ampersand boards to try. Haven't used them yet.
