Scritching and Scratching

I was at a cocktail party on Friday evening where I happened to meet a scratchboard artist, Marilu Tousignaut. She showed me pictures of some of her works, and I was completely amazed.

If you’re unfamiliar with scratchboard art, it is a board covered with white clay and then black paint. The artist scratches away the upper layer to reveal the white underneath. In other words, you only get one shot to get it right. Talk about exacting!
