If you are a scratchboard artist you will discover that there is no comparison with other scratch art materials. If you have the equipment it is possible to airbrush Ampersand clayboard with india ink and get satisfactory results but usually it is not worth it. The Ampersand scratchboard has a perfect finish and any errors are easily fixed.

This brand produces wonderful results; clear, crisp work, and so easy to use. The selection of sizes is also a wonderful thing.

HiI am an artist and have been working in scratchboard for many years.This is the best board I have ever worked on. I do very detailed work and a portrait takes me over 100 hours so you will appreciate how fine my detail is.Thank you Linda

Excellent scratchboard product
Ambersand is an excellent scratchboard product. The quality of the board produced exceedingly fine detail work for a great price. Don't buy cheap paper backed scratchboard- it doesn't scratch well. Always use Ambersand. It' s the best!

As a scratchboard artist, there is no other product that I would recommend, the Ampersand Boards are, in my view, the only boards to use.I like to invite my students to use these board, and I give each student a board to try, they always fall in love with the produce. Sadly, the Ampersand products are near impossible to get in Australia, so Blick offer excellent services, fast delivery. The only draw back is the high cost of freight, but it is worth it.
Ampersand manufactures a wide variety of archival artist panels. There is a surface for every artist, every medium and every technique. Watch this video to learn which of these boards is right for you!
