Fine Quality Scraperboard is heavily coated with china clay, giving a smooth surface which is then overprinted with black ink. A sharp scraper tool engraves a line through the surface ink to expose the white beneath. It offers an artistic medium which is clear and precise.
Used by illustrators and professional artists around the world, its super-smooth surface lets you work in extremely fine detail. It can also be used as an ideal airbrush medium. Engraving is as easy as drawing with a pencil, and with much the same action. The board provides an extreme level of contrast not possible with other media. Scraperboard can be subsequently coloured and reworked to provide many interesting possibilities.
White Scraperboard is also available upon which the user applies ink to selected areas. This eliminates excessive removal of large black areas. The working process is identical to that of black Scraperboard.
