Description

This linocut kit includes:

  • a custom made bench hook. Select whether you are right or left handed so that I can create a bench hook for you. My bench hook has a carving corner, which means your fingers stay far from the path of your blade.
  • 4″ x 6″ battleship grey linoleum plate and one 3.5″ x 5″ plate.
  • A linocut knife with 6 interchangeable blades so you can easily carve fine detail, or quickly carve out large areas of your plate. I started including this blade with my kit because many letterers and calligraphers became interested in the idea of reproducing their fonts using my palm press.
  • A 4″ brayer with a rubber roller and a sleek metal handle. It is easy to clean and rolls ink on nice and evenly. A step up from the plastic roller in similar kits.
  • I always include carbon transfer paper because it makes it possible to transfer your design onto your linoleum plate without destroying your original drawing. It can be used over and over again.
  • 5 sheets of vellum paper for test prints and 5 sheets of 5″ x 7″ handmade printmaking paper for your first edition.

Pocket Press + Magic Platen with Registration for Linocuts / multiple passes

A Linocut Press Station

I created this Magic Platen design for linocutters and other printmakers who want to create multiple print runs on a single sheet of paper. This small linocut press and platen (your plate holding platform) features built in registration pegs that make it easy to line up your plates, and also makes it possible to print using with dry paper. This platen can also be used for pressing intaglio and monoprints. My built-in registration pegs are standard hole punch size. I'll include a short stack of pre punched paper as a guide for you (overseas orders include less paper to keep shipping costs down). You can use this press and platen to press etchings, monoprints, collagraphs and to create embossings as well as to create your perfectly registered reduction linoleum prints. The press is approximately 3" x 3" x 2.5" It is small enough that it can concentrate your strength to press even the deepest acid etched plates. The platen (the platform that holds your plate) is a 9" x 12" with a printing area of about 9" x 9". It is possible to extend your printmaking surface horizontally. This platen is now only available in blue.
