The Speedball Speedy-Carve Block Printing Carving Block is made from revolutionary material that combines the ease of carving of other soft substrates and the fine detail of creating with traditional linoleum blocks. The pink block is latex free and measures 6 x 12 inches (1/4 inch thick surface). It is very beginner friendly and a popular choice to use in school and at home. The super soft, eraser-like texture of the block allows for young students to create printing blocks safely. Expert printers love using the Speedy-Carve Block as well. Effortlessly create your own custom stamps or printing blocks in school or at home. Designs can be simple or detailed, this carving block works well with any style. This carving block accepts transfers from laser printers, inkjet printers, clip art and newspapers. For use with water-soluble and oil-based block printing inks. Carving these blocks is a breeze and the material will not crack, crumble or break. We highly recommend using a bench hook to hold the block securely in place before carving.
