Flexcut Linoleum & Relief Carving Set

Professionals will like the quality and students will appreciate the value of Flexcut’s tool set for linoleum and relief carving. The set features four blade profiles from Flexcut’s extensive line of palm tools. Includes an 1/8-inch, a 5/16-inch sweep, a 1/4-inch V-tool, plus a 1mm micro V-tool. Palm tools offer great control while making cuts, so they are perfect for relief carving and close detail work.

Each blade is razor sharp and easily cuts away linoleum and wood surfaces to reveal your images and patterns. Cutting edges stay sharp and are easily maintained. The blades are interchangeable in the high-impact thermoplastic handle, which also comes in the set.

The set includes a manual, sharpening strop, polishing compound and an 5-pocket tool roll for a great value. Many additional blade profiles are available to extend your range of capabilities.

Piñata Alcohol Ink
Alcohol Inks: A Versatile Tool in the Creative Arsenal

When Jacquard launched Piñata Colors in 2002, alcohol inks were virtually unheard of. Since then, these unique inks have become extremely popular, especially among artists working on hard surfaces like tile, metal, glass, plastic, stone, leather, polymer clay, etc. Recently, Piñata has become a staple among resin artists for creating “petri” artwork: Piñata Colors are dripped onto the surface of the mixed resin after the mold is poured, and as each drop sinks, the resin hardens. The result when the cast is removed from the mold is a magnificent, psychedelic world of blooming color—what artist Josie Lewis calls a “petrified rainbow.”

Whenever a “new” medium comes around, it is always exciting to see how artists will embrace it. Piñata is one of those mediums that seems to have opened the door to a whole world of new possibilities. The applications artists use it for continue to surprise and delight!
