About This Group

This group is for artists who work using the technique of scratching or scraping in their artworks. Scratch art may be done on a variety of surfaces, such as Ampersand’s Scratchbord, which is a masonite board, covered in clay and then coated with ink. The ink surface is scratched into to reveal the white beneath, and is used as a negative drawing technique. Colour may be added to the scratched surface (using a variety of mediums) and then scratched again, giving a multi-layered effect.
