Yes dear folks, I am in beautiful Austin, Texas. Home of Ampersand Scratchbord (and other delicious art bords, like gessobord, claybord etc...) Check out their website to see all of them. I will be at the Jerry's Artarama Austin on N. I-35 this Saturday November 19th from 12noon-3pm teaching all who stop by about the wonders of scratchbord. If you are out and about stop by for a bit and play. If you've ever tried the paper version of scratchboard and been frustrated with how it tears and deteriorates, stop right in and try Ampersand's surface. I have been in love with this product for 10 years. Hmmmn, my longest relationship so far. And it's a good one! Go to the Ampersand website to learn more...about the bord, not my relationship history y'all!
