We have a great selection of ideas for Christmas. Whether that is a gift for your printmaking friend, or a gift for yourself, I am sure we have something.
Japanese Woodcutting Tools
We have had our big Japanese order arrive, so why not upgrade your tools. Perhaps nudge Father Christmas or make a self-present of a Sankakuto ‘v’ gouge, or a Komasuki ‘u’ gouge? We have a complete range of Hangito gouges, Aisuki and Kentonomi chisels. Our range of Japanese woodcut tools have been specially selected for high quality and performance. The blades are manufactured from high speed steel which is extremely hard ensuring the tool will stay sharper for longer.

Intaglio Printmaker Inks Gold, Silver & Copper
How about our Intaglio Traditional Relief inks in Gold, Silver and Copper? There is still time to be making some last minute cards. Intaglio Printmaker Traditional Relief inks are artist quality oil-based inks for all kind of relief printing, including woodcut, engraving, linocut and letterpress. Made with lightfast pigments ground into artist grade polymerised linseed oil, these inks offer deep intense colours with a crisp finish. These inks already contain driers and extender so can be used straight from the tube. To adjust drying times, add a small amount of cobalt or manganese driers (up to 1% should be sufficient).

Fabriano Venezia Sketchbook
We think that every artist needs a sketchbook. The Fabriano Venezia is an elegant book made of Accademia paper. Ideal for drawing or tempera, this pad has 48 sheets with a beautiful hardback cover. The texture on the cover is inspired by the modern mosaics present in the San Marco area of Venice. This sketchbook shows the best combination of Italian fine arts style: Venezia and Fabriano.
