Scraper-board etching, of an original photo, of Monarch Butterflies. Photograph by Woolaways photography.
Scraperboards are boards coated with a fine white china clay and coated with an opaque black ink. Dramatic black and white images can be created by scraping through the black ink coating to expose the white clay surface underneath. The white clay surface can then be painted on with Gouache or watercolour paints.
