i used to do alot of printmaking, but last semester i was working a full-time job, a part-time job and going to school full time, so i kind of waned on my art. now that i want to get back into it, i have run out of linoleum. i know that you can buy sheets or rolls or blocks of it online, but i really would like the conveniency of just running to the store when i need it, rather than ordering it in bulk and then waiting a week or two every time i need it. i know that i can get the ink at any hobby or craft store, but the only kind of rubber that they have for carving is in children's stamp-making kits : / does anyone know where i can get this stuff without the hassle? i'd be forever grateful (or at least until i'm done with my project : ) ) oh, and i have finished a few prints, if anyone would like to see them

Dick Blick will have them, but if there isn't one in your area, you may be out of luck and just have to order in bulk. Sad

You can probably special order things from them and pick them up from the store. My store does that, at least.

This doesn't help much with *where* to get it, but I just tried the Staedtler mastercarve--it's a soft vinyl carving medium for stamping--and I really liked it.  It's more expensive than linoleum, but it's thick enough that you can carve both sides of it and get two images out of each.  It was nice not to worry about slipping or anything like that.  They sell it at Blick...

Or, if you really want to do some carving and can't find the blocks, use a hunk of wood....?

if there's an art school in your area, try checking out the stores near the school.

go to your school's bookstore if they have art supplies, that's where I got mine
