Rainbow Bird by kookybat Rainbow Bird by kookybat
I've done scratchboard, and I've done fluorescent paint...so I thought, why not combine them? :D It was an experiment but I like how it came out. It looks pretty cool under blacklight, too! I thought about doing a background but with my limited supply of fluorescent colors I thought it would just detract from the bird.

This is amazing! How exactly did you do it? Because it looks like the scratchboard had exactly the right colors under the black, but I know that can't be it...

Thanks! :D It was white underneath, I added the paint after. Luckily it doesn't show at all on the black! Because I didn't paint it /that/ carefully. xD
