Scraperboard or scratchboard is a card heavily coated with china clay giving a smooth surface which is then over-printed with black ink. A cutting tool engraves a line through the surface ink to expose the white beneath. Closely spaced lines produce textures and tones. It offers an artistic medium which is clear and precise.

Engraving is as easy as drawing with a pencil, and with much the same action. Scraperboard can be subsequently coloured and reworked to provide many interesting possibilities.
