    Scraping tool(s)

    I'm thinking of how I sometimes use the palette knife to scrape through paint, or a credit card edge, or even my finger, when I think of scraping tools.

    I miss that sometimes.

    Hi Bearblue-is this picture an example of what you what you want to do?

    paint thick and then scrape back in your paint you already laid down?

    I put on the paint with lots of pressure and loading then used my pencil with the same colour to carve back in the 'H' with high pressure and no softness and with a different colour for the 'i' and people have been using the pallet knife to do the same thing

    Kurage shows it and explains it better here and you commented on it so i know you saw what they did and im not sure what your missing having? do you mean more variety of tools to make such marks?

    The Eraser does a great job too, but you need to select a suitable canvas colour. Also works well on a layer.
    Luck is infatuated with the efficient.

    I'll give those a try, but they weren't quite what I was thinking. But at the same time, ooooh. Now I have to try some more new things. Thanks for the replies.

    Hi bearblue, ok cool! have fun trying everything out.

    Maybe you could let us all know *exactly* what you were after so if any of us do fall over a way of doing it we can share it
