Speedy Carve Kit
A petite kit for a time-tested, stamp-making practice. Take the tracing paper and draw the design you’d like to transfer to your rubbery carve block. Then use the wooden handled cutter (with 1 of 2 metal carving tips) to scoop out your design (keeping in mind that the spaces you carve will be the spaces that retain ink). Tada! Block print stamp. Use your stamp over and over to create your image on all sorts of surfaces with different types and colors of paint. Instructions included. Made in the USA. Hand wash. * Includes: carve block (6″l, 4″w), wooden handle with v-shape line cutter and u-shape gouge attachments, tracing paper, instructions
