SCRATCHBOARD  art originated in the 19th century in Europe and is a form of direct engraving.  Under a top layer of black India ink is a layer of kaolin clay on a board.  Multi-colored layers can also be used or color applied after the etching, if desired.  It became a popular medium for illustrations due to its clear, fine lines that could be photographed without losing quality.  In the 1930s to 1950s, it was one of the preferred techniques for medical, scientific, and product printing.  The engraving is accomplished by using sharp instruments primarily, such as an Exacto knife or scalpel.  However, other tools such as sandpaper, steel wool, brushes, and any tool the imagination can provide are also practiced. Scratchboard is not widely known and is considered by many artists to be one of the most challenging mediums.  It is a very time consuming work as all textures are created by fine scratches.
