Baren Tool Kit Armadillo

This Baren Tool Kit is an ideal multi-purpose tool for use in lino printing and block making. It includes the supplies to be used as a lino cutter utilizing the handle and five cutters, as a baren for burnishing, as a stamp with the SoftCut lino discs (two discs included) and as a storage unit for the cutter blades. The high-quality cutters included yield fine cut lines and low cutting effort for producing excellent results in suitable material. The polished nylon base of the baren glides over the thinnest of papers to burnish the back of a print, resulting in excellent pick up of ink without the need for a press. The SoftCut discs have one adhesive side so that they can be held steady on a flat surface for cutting, and then placed onto the face of the baren for stamping. After use they can be wiped clean, removed from the baren, and protected for storage with the reapplication of the included protective silicone cover. SoftCut replacement discs available in packs of ten.
