Reds - a white clayboard engraving (scratchboard)

As you know, I've been experimenting with blotched ink over white clayboard, etched like scratchboard.  This one uses a red base.  I'm liking this more and more.  Here is my latest, an 8x10 inch board, done in 11 movies.  I've included all the steps so you can see my process.  Enjoy.

I began with several layers of acrylic ink on a white board:

When the layers of ink were dark enough I began etching with a stylus, multiple needle tool and a wide engraver.
