You can buy online from www.stampeaz.com - they are in the US but ship internationally. I live in the UK and got my supplies from them. The shipping fees were quite reasonable.

hi I got my carvng tools from the artbarn in cairns. lino carving tools variety of sizes.
I picked up packs of 4 stamps (blue and clear package, brand : value)) for 49c from Office work today. I am practising on these. I also have lino but i think the rubbers will work out ok for small stamps.
carves out easy enough.
goodluck, cyndiq

Hi. I've been wanting to do this too.

I contacted an ebay seller and he made a listing for me.

It's alot of money, but, you get everything you need.


lino carving to make stamps is super easy (and fun)

ETA. You can also just purchase some sort of carving tools and use cheap rubbery erasers. Depends on what size etc you're going for. Erasers work well too
