Scratchbord Claybord Inks - Formulated for adding color to scratchboard, these terrific inks create vibrant colors without leaving an inky residue on black areas. On Claybord & other fine surfaces, these inks can also be used for painting and drawing. What a perfect accessory to the Ampersand line and the new project booklets! Ink set includes 6 -.5 oz bottles in carmine red, yellow, light green, ultramarine blue, sepia and magic black repair.
Steel Wool - Our oil-free artist grade steel wool was designed for removing pigment from large areas and for creating tonal values. It leaves Claybord clean and white when used to remove inks, watercolors, gouache, etc. Each package comes with one pad of each grade 0000, 000, and 00.
Line tool - Use the needle tool for parallel lines and easy cross-hatching. This tool has four needles tightly pressed together so you can create extremely fine cross-hatching details.
Scratch Knife Holder - (with Two Nibs) Use this standard scratchboard tool for thin or wide controlled line drawing.
Wire Brush - Use this tool for creating random textures including hair, grass and feathers. Many curved metal wires are held together in this wood handled tool.
Fiber Brush - This tool is used for creating gradual tonal values or crisp edges. It is fashioned out of fiberglass so that the pigment can be removed leaving soft edges. Use a soft brush to remove the dust because the fibers can cause skin irritation.
