Detail of "Hen" by Troy's Work Table. Chalkboard chalking for Wednesday 17 February 2016.

Sidewalk chalk, chalk pastels, and charcoal on chalkboard.


More experimentation with the new chalkboards. I found that wetting the chalk and pastels just slightly allowed them to adhere to the board better. Then using the sharp edges of the charcoal similar to the effect of sgraffito or scratchboard to "cut" through the chalk to the black of the board below helped to add some detail.
