It's the stuff for making your own rubber stamps. Carves easily like butter apparantly. Can see a lot of US sellers on Amazon/Ebay and have found a German supplier that does free postage. Just wondered if any of you had found a good source. It's quite pricey stuff by the looks of it but you can make quite a few stamps out of a small piece of rubber.

I get mine from Amazon, but you might find it cheaper somewhere else. If you tick the 'UK only' box in the location bit on ebay, there are some UK sellers.

It really isn't cheap, but it carves beautifully. I also find I get a better print with it than with lino, as I don't have a press.

Thanks Songbird. Yes I also have all the stuff for lino printing but no press! Have been meaning to try this Speedball stuff for ages. Am assuming that the usual lino-cutting tools will do the job? Off to look at Amazon and Ebay.

Google "rubber blade stamps"-that's the store I bought mine from, they were very helpful. Expensive stuff though.
