It consists of a mixture of white from Spain with linseed oil pressed on a burlap. Very easy to work with gouges for its softness and flexibility.
Linoleum is sized just like a wooden block, but much easier to be softer.
We have a large stock and measures of linoleum plates for linocut. The artistic linoleum plates are a modern variant of woodcut (embossed), in which linoleum is used as a matrix. The procedure to obtain the image is identical to the one of the wood engraving, incising on the linoleum with gouges, so that the emptied parts will remain blank and the areas in relief will be those that receive the application of the ink, to take into account the The image that will be seen on the paper will be the reverse of how it was drawn on the linoleum plate. Being a soft material, linoleum does not present the difficulties of the grain of the wood.^
