Ampersand Scratchboard Tools
Use the fiber brush tool like an eraser to soften crisp edges and to create gradual tonal values. Use a soft brush to remove the eraser dust because the fiberglass fibers can cause skin irritation.
Use the wire brush for creating random textures like hair, grass and fur. Curved stainless steel wires are held together in this wood handled tool.
SRATCH KNIFE HOLDER with 2 nibs:
The scratch knife is the best tool to select when trying scratchboard for the first time. Each handle comes with 2 nibs, one point and one curved.
Use the line tool for parallel lines and easy cross-hatching. This tool has five needles tightly pressed together so you can create extremely fine cross-hatching details.
Use the Ampersand tools to work with the Clayboard panels and for scratchboard. The Scratchboard Toolkit comes with one each of the tools shown in the image, a piece of steel wool and a free piece of Clayboard for experimentation. Tools are also available packaged individually.
