Favorite Products

Speedball Professional Relief Inks (Set of Four) - Supergraphic Black, Quinacridone Red, Hansa Yellow Light, and Phthalo Blue. I love this set as it offers primary colors plus black which allows one to mix a wide range of hues. Speedball Fabric Block Printing Inks and Speedy Carve are my two other favorite products. These two work very well together in providing excellent versatility when it comes to printing into fabric like shirts. I enjoy creating tote bags with these inks as the oil transfers smoothly to fabric. The pink Speedy Carves transfer sharp and clean lines with the advantage of being easy and fun to work with.
