Ampersand Scratchbord on Ink Master

Recently Ampersand got the opportunity to create custom Scratchbords for Spike TV's show Ink Master. For the show Ampersand created 10, 7ftx7ft Scratchbord panels supported with 2in deep cradle frames. They are the largest custom-built scratchboards ever created in the history of Ampersand --and they glow under blacklight!

Ampersand says,
For the flash challenge, competitors teamed up in pairs to create huge wall-size 7ftx7ft scratchboard drawings. The drawings were then critiqued and judged under black light, quickly exposing each and every tiny flaw. The main criteria, gradation technique or the artist's skill at shading, was used to determine a winner for the challenge.

Watch the video below to see the flash challenge for yourself!
