WOW, this was perfect for my art class
Comments about Ampersand Scratchbords:
I used Ampersand Scratchbord from Blick to create two required projects in college. The quality was great and produced beautiful results. The clay and ink was thick enough to show a multitude of values. I ordered more for making art outside of class.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I really love the way this brand works with scratchboard projects and so do the students. I show them Sally Maxwell's work and students strive to achieve a higher level than just black and white. That can be done more easily with this brand than other brands.
Love this product
First time using this and loved it!

Best quality for scratchboard
By HRush Designs
from Windham, ME
This was my first time using Ampersand Scratchbord. I ordered it after enjoying working on claybord. My only negative is that I had a hard time keeping the background pristine and ended up with some marks and oil stains from my fingers. I added burnt sienna watercolor using a stencil to fix that problem. Next time I will take steps to better protect the areas to be kept black. I got a pack of (3) 5x7 to start with so I have more to use now that I know I like it.
