The Finished Scratchboard Fox

 
Here’s the final scratchboard fox.  I did a second layer of color, this time with thin washes of Liquitex soft body acrylics, then another layer of scratching, and finally a few more washes.
 
I’m reasonably happy with the result, but unless I can come to terms with the difficulty of the first layer of color I’m not sure I’ll stick with it.  I will, however, try at least one more time using the soft body acrylics rather than acrylic inks for the first color layer.  Hopefully that will work better.
 
I do like the luminous color one gets with the bright white clayboard shining through the paint.
