It's the original soft printmaking material! E-Z-Cut is a block of synthetic rubber-like material that is so easy to carve that even young students can create printing blocks safely. Use our E-Z-Cut handle and Speedball linoleum cutters for pen-like control. It won't slip and slide on the table. E-Z-Cut is 3/8" thick — thick enough that both sides can be carved if desired. Each package contains two blocks. The 4" × 6" (9 cm × 15 cm) size is perfect for greeting cards and note cards. Try cutting even smaller squares for rubber stamping! We recommend Dick Blick's water-based printing inks. Handle printing blocks with care, because E-Z-Cut blocks can break easily if cut too deeply or if accidentally folded. Please note you must use a sharp blade at all times for best results.
