Speedball’s Speedy-Carve Blocks are designed for relief printmaking. They have a soft, putty-like surface which is easier to cut than traditional linoleum, and are designed for use with lino-cutting tools. As they are flexible, Speedy-Carve Blocks can be used to print onto flat or curved surfaces.

As in lino-cutting, the desired design is cut in reverse into the surface of the block with gouges or knives. Water-soluble or oil-based ink is then transferred to the raised, uncut areas of the block using a roller/brayer. The design can be printed onto paper or fabric, in a press or by hand. The blocks are Latex-free.

Dimensions: 15x30.5 cm

Review by Feefo
I always use this for my stamp-making workshops and the students love it. it is very easy to cut and you can achieve fine details with practise. You don't need a support for it as it is thick enough to be used as a stamp without. It takes a tracing well and you can draw directly onto it. Bit pricey but a 6" x 12" piece will make a lot of stamps. I cut it into six pieces for the students to make a Christmas card design, they had lovely results when stamping directly onto the card blanks. (Posted on 22/11/2016)
