You are welcome Janice! Looking forward to your Kings River.

Thank you, Linda, for this excellent video.  Now I can prepare my clayboard for 'Along the Kings River'.  Interesting surface and am anxious to begin.

I have not tried a sponge brush as they can be tricky to use. Experiment and let me know!

Linda clayboards are a wonderful surface to work on, would you be able to use a foam brush to apply the sealer and glaze medium?

Thanks for sharing your no brush marks technique..thats one thing I hadnt thought to do..thin 25% water and seal twice.  Thanks for the tip about glaze medium prior to patterning the design chosen! great idea.  I keep forgetting glaze is not shiny when dry because I used it so seldom!

I can't open the clapboard video with my iPad. I am able to watch the rest of the videos. I would like to know if it is any kind of password to open it.

A clayboard is super smooth! It actually has a coat of Kaolin clay applied over a nonwarping hardboard surface. The early Flemish and Dutch Masters worked on as smooth a surface as they could create. Many of the blending techniqiues used were similar to a rubbing technique with a soft, dry brush and any blemish or texture is instantly magnified when using these techniqiues. I cannot create this smooth a surface with any preparation that I have tried, so this is a wonderful gift for the artist wanting to work in this particular manner.

I have never heard of a clayboard.  Why would we use a clayboard?  Is it smoother for a good painting surface?  Thank you for the video.
