lino cutting anyone?

Hello there! 

Did you see Magda's recent blog post with her gorgeous lino cut print of her Vizsla? 

My excitement is, well, hyper I guess, as I am so so pleased to announce that you can now find Lino Cutting Tools, Traditional Lino and Softcut sheets and Caligo Safe Wash Relief Inks in the store!! 

Softcut sheets are perfect if you have never tried lino cutting before.  They are softer than the traditional lino and easier to cut. It's a high quality material that is 3mm thick and it's white, making it easy to see your drawings.  

These artist quality printing inks are made using vegetable oils so you can wash them away with soap and water rather than having to use solvents,  These inks are made using high quality pigments rather than dyes so they offer excellent lightfastness and permanance. 

Ideal for lino, block printing, etching etc. Caligo inks have all the characteristics of oil base printing inks, but with the added benefit of simple soap and water clean up.  These inks carry the AP approved mark so they are non toxic and suitable for use by children. 

Please do go take a look, spread the word and have a play with these fabulous new products!
