Ok, I've been reviewing all of the scratchboard work and I have a queries.

Zilpa, you made a comment about coloured inks that can be used to add colour. I've found some acrylic inks, and some acid inks. Would one of these be suitable? The fellow at the art shop wasn't really sure, apparently they don't get a lot of scratchboard users in this area.

 >:( Ach!! Just got a call and have to go. Will continue with this later. Thanks in advance for any info!  :wave:
Cheers, Val

I know people that use the iIndia inks and acrylic inks.  I've ordered a bottle of tattoo in to see how it does, too.  I'll post my results.

Look forward to seeing how you make out Nancy.  :clap:

Looks like I'll have to pick up some India inks in the US on the way home.
Cheers, Val

Sorry Val, I have not been tempted to try other colours yet as I like the dramatic black and white look.
