Milk Carton Scratchboard

I have been intrigued by high contrast art for awhile. I've tried printing white etching on black, but the white is never really "white". I even bought some supposedly more opaque white Akua Kolor ink and tried it. It wasn't anymore opaque than their regular white. Geez!
So when I bought a children's book with scratch board art, my cleverness kicked in and I wondered how I could try it without buying anything. So, I took an empty soy milk carton and cut out one of the sides and coated it with sharpie and made my own scratchboard. This is my second scratch board. The milk carton material allows the black to be rubbed/scratched off easily, making tones quite possible.
