After years of trying to find a linoleum product that would be easier for artists of all ages to carve on, Richeson has developed an innovative material that seems to be the answer. Working with traditional lino tools, it cuts like butter. It leaves beautiful, clean edges and works well on curves and tight corners. It is really an answer for those who have wrestled with tough or hard linoleum in the past. One of its real advantages is that it has a long shelf life – as much as ten times longer than that of traditional lino – so it will stay workable for much longer.
