Ragged Edges - a Clayboard Engraving (Scratchboard)

This is my newest 6x6 inch clayboard engraving.



First I painted the white board with four or five layers of colored india inks to create a wine colored marbled background.  Then I lightly sketched my design onto it.



I spent about three two-movie sessions carefully etching out the design.






Finally, after adding my signature chop, I painted in shadows with diluted india ink.  I let it dry and... Voila!



This will be matted and then offered for sale.  Inquire if interested at www.EmerlyeArts.com
