Scratchbord Tool Kit
This kit provides an artist with the tools to produce a striking work on Scratchbord and other fine art surfaces with depth and dimension. Find precision by using the scratch knives for drawing and fine details and the wire brush to create grass and hair textures. Also included is a line tool for cross-hatching and a fiber brush to assist in easily removing large areas of paint or ink. Rounding out this kit is a sample of Claybord and oil-free steel wool to help inspire experimentation.
FLAX art & design is a genuine Oakland institution. Opening their first store in 1938, they’re now on their 3rd generation of family ownership and have recently relocated to a beautiful new Downtown location that could best be described as a “toy store for artists.” 80 years in and they’re still putting art and community front and center. You can visit them at their own site here, or find more of their products right here on Keep Oakland Alive.
