Comments about Speedball Speedy Carve Blocks:
These are mush. Whether you like this or not depends on what you are trying to do .... They are so soft that getting any real detail is impossible.... even trying to ink them, small details move. Perhaps If you are looking for something for a kid or if you have issues with strength in your hands these are probably what you want. If you are trying to make beautiful art prints with fine detail they are just to rubbery. They do carve like butter.... soft butter... I would not purchase these again. I am sure they have their uses but they are pricey and don't suit my needs. Glad I only had one to try.
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend

Easy and Fun

My FIRST time carving a block...and it was easy with this material. I got wonderful help and advice from Blicks' 'technical' folks...
Great for beginners as well as professional artists!

Speedball's Speedy Carve blocks offer the beginning block printing student an opportunity for success. The material carves like butter and produces a carved block that prints beautifully. They are also great for more experienced artists...quick to carve, durable blocks.

easy to cut and great for detail
from Chicago, IL
I had been using the cheaper soft-kut carving blocks, but they were so soft that it was almost impossible to get fine detail. The speedy carve material is more expensive, but a HUGE improvement in quality. It is just as easy to cut, but you get much greater control.

2nd only to Moo Carve blocks
This carving block is excellent and I'd rate it second only to Moo Carve blocks which are denser but just as easy to cut.
So nice to carve!
from Portland, OR
The blocks are so smooth and easy to carve on, even a beginner can make beautiful blocks to print with.
Great carving material!
Easy to carve, without shredding. Crisp image stamping. I love that you can use both sides.
