    Strawboard is a new material Or I should say old material I have just started to work on. Its really fun. They call it shellac board because I think I had to shellac the board three times to get the right feel for it. Then it peels off in layers. Its fun to work with and you can ink it up like an etching and it gives an etching feel. I love aquatint etching but, its time and now I"m not in school I need materials to teach my students how and to get quick results. Give it a go. Let me know if you hvae trouble finding it, I have a supplier. B

    Is this true shellac on a board, and what kind of board is used? I too am looking for an alternative to traditional etching methods since I don’t have a printmaking studio.

    Shellac Board or Straw Board. I bought it from art supplies. Great on line shop for printmakiing materials. I think you should give it a go. I can send you a copy if you like. Billy
