The perfect lino printing starter set

Would you like to learn lino printing? Lino printing is a great creative pursuit for adults and kids alike. Lino printing keeps everyone happy for hours. With this starter kit, you have everything you need to get started – and it’s a great gift idea!

Cute and handy 8-part set

This handy starter set contains:

  • 1 lino roller, rubber
  • 1 glass plate
  • 1 lino printing block (A6)
  • 1 wooden shaft
  • 3 lino cutting blades
  • 1 tube of lino printing ink (20 ml)

You will also need: paper, PAP FAB or fabric to print on.

How to make a lino print with this set: 

  • Draw your motif on the lino printing block. Use a soft pencil.
  • Use the lino cutting tools to make contours. Hold the shaft of the lino cutting tool like a knife. Do not cut too deeply into the lino printing block. Work carefully to avoid injuries.
  •  Using the roller, roll lino printing ink onto the glass plate until the ink is evenly distributed. Use the roller to transfer the colour to your lino printing block.
  • Lay the wet lino printing block onto a sheet of paper. (If you like, try this out on newspaper first). Be sure to use a paper format that is slightly larger than the lino printing block. Carefully turn the paper and the lino printing block over. Press with your hand. The harder the pressure, the better the result. To create pressure, you can also roll the lino roller backwards and forwards. NB: Clean the roller first.
  • Gently peel the paper off, and leave to dry. Your motif is done.
  •  Clean your tools with water.
