Speedball and Rise + Wander Team Up

We're grateful every day we get to work with our partners artists to support their studios and their work while learning how to improve our offerings to better suit their unique needs.  It's not everyday, though, that we get to team up with one of  our favorite pros to create a fully-customized offering specific to their brand new online courses, all developed to spread the love of relief printing all while taking out the fear that keeps so many from getting inky!

Enter Aftyn Shah, the solopreneur, printmaker and painter behind the beautiful original works found at her site or on her Instagram account -- not to mention the mad printmaking scientist behind the formulation responsible for her limited edition Speedball  Print Posse Relief Ink, "Riverstone Blue."  We had the supreme fortune to work with Aftyn to build a customized relief printing kit, "The Fundamentals of Block Printing Kit," specific to her vision of creating the perfect resource for any printmaker or budding artist alike--all at an incredible (and accessible!) value price.

The R+W Fundamentals of Block Printing Kit includes:

(1) 1.25oz tube of Supergraphic Black water-miscible oil-based ink
(1) 1.25oz tube of Riverstone Blue water-miscible oil-based ink
(1)  Interchangeable multi-head tool | Lino Cutter + Handle

We know this is the perfect way for any printmaker to get insprired or reinspired to tackle relief printing in a whole new way, not to mention being the PERFECT gift for any printmaker in your life.  Click here to learn more!
