These large sized scratchboards will be created literally one line at a time. All of my art is made using sharp tools, by scratching into a board covered in white clay and black ink. I scratch away the black ink to create the image in white.
Each scratchboard takes over 35 hours to create. Each line will be scratched into the piece, creating a 14x 18 inch, 12x12 inch or 8x10 inch image. The boards are extremely lightweight (masonite) and will be cradled in back to allow the piece to float off the wall and hang beautifully. Framing is also an option -- let me know if you are interested and I will send you information on various options.
This image would be great in a shore home, cottage, snow birds' nest... or just about anywhere that would make you want to sit back, relax and think of the ocean! You can create your own octopuses’ garden!
Also available - a metal print of the shown “Octohelmet” with the whole octopus emerging from the mask. A wooden stand will be provided as shown (or not - you make the choice)!!
Frames are handmade in a shadowbox style. They so not include glass to allow the scratchboard to show its texture. The rustic wood has been stained classic grey or torched to a deep brown and then wire brushed and sealed with an oil. There is an upcharge for the torched wood (see cost on this listing.
