Because I am planning to scratch into my images, I needed to make sure that it would be possible with Fibre based images, as their composition is drastically different to resin coated.

I discovered that it is harder to scratch into fibre based, however, it is possible to create a good array of scratches, I just have to be careful of tearing or incorporate it into the image.

I will stick with the decision to use Fibre based, but remain aware of the extra work this will leave me when I need to work into the images.
