Just completed my first Scratchboard in Gold!  Found this Scratchbrite scratchboard at an art shop in Sydney. Gives a lovely effect but it is harder working on this than the Ampersand Scratchboard. Firstly, it is easier to scratch but if you scratch too hard, the paper will tear and expose white. Secondly, it does not react well to varnish and human touch. I have therefore framed under glass. Will be entering this piece in the Hobart Rotary Art Show which runs 10-12 August 2018 at the Wrest Point casino in Hobart.

I paid $7 per sheet. It seems that they are much cheaper online –  https://www.dickblick.com/products/scratch-art-scratch-brite-gold-and-silver-scratchboards/

I have also acquired some silver Scratchboard in Sydney from the same US company. Always nice to have options and a point of difference!
