Safety-Kut from Nasco

the safety-kut stuff from nasco is much firmer than soft cut, and thicker, too, but still easier to cut than lino. I tried the soft cut once and my students nearly killed me! They wanted the other stuff back that they had learned on!

  I'm torn when it comes to softcut vs linoleum. I know softcut is safer, but I don't like the way it stretches when you hold one end and carve on the other, you know? The kids complain about that.

      Nasco has "Soft-Cut" , really great stuff, but not an accepted material for Speedball contests. They insist on Linolium block. ( Hate it) Too many accidents.

      Really?! Could they tell the difference if you used softcut instead of lino block? After using softcut, I wouldn't WANT to use anything else. Can't understand why it would make a diff. to them as it's the SAME technique and you can do really fine work with it and the product looks the same to me. I think I'll probably never go back to lino ever again. I teach mid. school and besides the pitfalls of lino and cutters, there is the time element. Softcut is way faster. Toodles.....Bunki
