Thank you, Geoff!
Your workshop paper is amazing!

I used to love the Esdee boards which are now hard to get, but now 
Ampersand is producing some good results. Thank you for sharing your 
thoughts on this.

I use a white background scraperboard/scratchboard and apply India ink 
where necessary and work dark to light and light to dark, rather like 
you described. Yay!

Your information is very much appreciated!
Best cheer,
Linda
