Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great quality product Does what it says on the packet - very easy to cut. Large size means I can cut the sheets to the exact dimensions I want.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from So easy to use! So much easier to use that lino, yet still just as effective and durable. It can be a bit easier to make a mistake as it's softer, but a little bit of glue solves everything. Great for those just starting out with block printing.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This product is easily worked The product is soft enough to cut easily, but robust enough to retain detail and allow for a clear print.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect for linocuts I brought this for my exam to do a reduction linocut print and it was so much easier to cut than ordinary lino which was a major bonus for me as I’m not the strongest person. The ease of cutting definitely cut down the time I spent on it. It was really good quality and didn’t crumble like normal lino can sometimes and it was honestly so lovely to work with. It had a funny smell when you opened the packet but you quickly get used to it and it becomes more like white spirit for oil painters; a pleasant background smell. Couldn’t fault it really. Absolutely perfect for the job and would be great for any novice printers as it’s so easy to work with and I don’t think my cuts will be crumbling or hardening anytime soon. It also has a rough texture on one side of the sheet so it doesn’t slide around on your desk constantly! All in all, would absolutely recommend to any linocutter

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to carve, good results. I prefer this lino to my usual Hessian backed lino as it's easy to carve. I have osteoarthritis in my thumb and this lino is a lot easier for me to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Larger size - larger projects. Enjoying learning lots about lino it as a project, and ready to tackle a larger image. These look really good value and being a bit softer than other materials, might give me better flexibility for trying new ideas.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Just what I was looking for Easy to cut, smooth and pliable lino, Good to fund it in larger sheets- thank you Hobbycraft!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Easy to carve, good size, unsure of ingredients I do love working on this medium - it is much smoother to use than traditional lino, easy to get sweeping curves and fine detail. It prints very well and can be used again immediately after washing as it dries completely with a cloth. The only problem I have is that I do not know what the material actually is - I assume it must be a plastic so the small pieces carved off are an environmental issue. I keep these in a jar ready to use in mixed media work.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Excellent I’m just beginning with Lino cutting. I was having difficulties with previous Lino but this is so easy and soft to use.
