Gomuban Relief Printing Plate

Ordered a free sample of Gomuban Relief Printing Plates from McClain's Printmaking Supplies. Gomuban is a synthetic rubber plate used in Japanese classrooms. It can be carved on either side but is a very thin plate. It works well with a press, however, since I don't own a press, I printed my images by hand, and just tested it with an ink pad.

It was amazingly easy to carve with my Speedball Linoleum cutter.
I was able to get a very fine line, which made me very happy!

I think I will order this again!
