There are many tools that are needed to complete a linoleum block print from start to finish. Although the tools can get a bit pricey, most of the tools that are needed can be reused again and again. Ink and paper are the only two supplies that you will need to continue to replenish over time.
• Pen, marker, pencil, colored pencil
• Linoleum block
• Transfer paper
• Bench hook
• Lino Handle/lino cutters
• Printer’s ink (Oil Based)
• Brayer (ink roller)
• Electric blanket and towel
• Spoon (or a Baren)
• Glass surface (plate or baking pan will do)
All of these tools can be bought at your local craft supplier. I bought a block printing kit at Michael's Arts and Crafts store, and this included all of the basic printmaking materials that are needed. Speedball Art
is a great supplier for block printing supplies. They are affordable and of good quality, especially for a beginner.
