Getting Started in Printmaking; Silk Cut Lino

Hello and thanks for taking the time to read my blog on getting started in printmaking.

Silk Cut Lino has been developed to suit printmaking artists needs for a soft easy material to carve for the most delicate and intricate lines. The silk cut lino ingredients are made of ecologically friendly renewable raw materials. A lot of research went into finding materials that meet stringent environmentally-conscious standards from the offset of harvesting the raw materials to the decomposition of the product at the end of its use. It can safely be added to landfill where natural decomposition will take place.
Silk Cut Linoleum is made from 6 ingredients-linseed oil, rosin, wood flour, limestone and cork, which are mixed and then pressed onto a backing of natural jute, and then allowed to cure.
Silk Cut Lino is available in various size tiles and rolls,
Tile: 15 cm x 15 cm (6" x 6")
Tile: 30 x 30 cm (12" x 12")
Roll: 100 x 180 cm (39 1/4" x 72")
Roll: 180 cm x 30 m (72" x 100 'approx)

Happy Printmaking!
