Welcome to dickblick
It's softer and easier to carve but maintains all of the qualities of traditional "Battleship" linoleum. The fine textured surface produces sharp, clear prints and won't distort when subjected to high pressure in the printmaking press.
The lighter golden color makes pencil marks easily visible no need to paint the surface white. The inevitable hardening-with-age process has been significantly reduced with Golden-Cut Linoleum.
For your convenience we offer unmounted Golden Cut linoleum in packages of pre-cut pieces in popular sizes. Enjoy extra savings on the same Golden-Cut linoleum as in rolls. Cut it yourself using a sharp knife, utility cutter, or paper trimmer.

Hard to cut
By Art teacher
Comments about Blick Golden-Cut Linoleum:
I ordered some of this, hoping it would be easier for my students to carve than the battleship gray. However, it is harder and more brittle, slippery to carve and doesn't cut very smoothly. My students that are using this are having a harder time than the ones with the battleship linoleum. I would rather deal with the battleship gray than this.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

The quality and freshness of the linoleum was good, but the edges had been damaged, and I needed to cut them down by an inch or so to trim off the broken corners.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
Buy products over again.

So much more manageable than the gray stuff!
My high school students complain much less about carving this than the gray linoleum they had been using before. Sometimes it breaks a little bit with dull carving tools, but it hasn't been much of a problem.

I use this product for relief printing. Soft enough for my 7 year old to carve right at my side!

A little Softer yet still crisp carving
By Le Arte Teacher
from Northampton, PA
I've been teaching art for almost 20 yrs., and bought this for my 11 yr. old to try lino cutting. (Please note: I do not recommend linocut for most young artists, and this was done with careful 1 on 1 supervision) I use traditional battleship gray linoleum myself, so I have high expectations for line clarity and ability to hold details, but needed a softer material for her younger hands and muscles. It was great! I cut her first few outlines of larger areas, which she then carved away, building her to do her own edges and then into her smaller details. She did have to work a bit to use a good amt of pressure, but quickly got a feel for it. (The pressure felt like well heated battleship, but without the fuzzing.) She had clean, crisp edges, almost no "chipping out," sank into small details, and only "bottomed out" once. It also took the ink (we used Speedball) smoothly, printing clearly. I'm very happy with the product!
good product, good value, good service
Oh My Block Prints
from Davis, CA
This linoleum is very smooth, easy to carve and can produce sharp narrow lines as well as interesting textures. It does not get hard with aging very rapidly. Drawing on the surface with a pencil is good for setting up a pattern to cut. The surface accepts water-based ink well and transfers to slightly moist or dry papers fairly evenly. The linoleum without a wooden back can be cut like a jigsaw puzzle and after inking can be assembled to print an image with multiple colors. (However watercolor painting of block prints is easier for making multiple color images.) I like to print with a press rather than a rubbing tool. The pressure of the press if it is too light produces an uneven print; if the pressure is too high the lines get smeared...you have to play with it till the pressure is just right. After cleaning the ink off the linoleum with soap and water, I put the linoleum between a bunch of newspaper sheets with a weight on top so the linoleum drys flat. If it drys flat it can be re printed easily. These large sheets of this linoleum keep my muse busy.

I exclusively use Speedball mounted linoleum for carving, but I decided to give this a try because I had never used unmounted linoleum, and because it was so cheap. When it arrived, it was really easy to carve, which I liked. It doesn't accept the ink as nicely. There are spots where the ink doesn't want to stick. It is also slightly convex, which makes even printing really difficult. I ended up gluing it to the backs of some used blocks, and that worked much better.
