From a very early age, Jeanne Rhea thought of herself as an artist. And yet, as many do, she hesitated to call herself one. “Others should make that determination… my art should speak for itself.” It was only within the last ten years that she has felt comfortable assuming the title.

Texas artist, Sally Maxwell, is known for her exquisite scratchboard drawings. Her enthusiasm for the medium led her to develop techniques for using color with scratchboard over fifty years ago.

Scratchbord/Claybord inks are specially formulated for adding color to Ampersand Scratchbord, Claybord, and other paper scratchboards. The transparent inks leave vibrant color in only the white areas of scratchboard drawings and can easily be scratched through back to white when adding fine details and highlights.
