(When followed by BB /BA these are available both in the Byron Bay & in the Ballina store. B alone stands for available only in Byron Bay.)

We have basic etching supplies like

  • the tiles: Silk cut (a variety of sizes but we do stock quite large ones), vinyl plates (3 sizes) or even wooden boards for etching then foam or thick rubber for block printing and now we also carry the amazing Gelli plate for monoprinting in all sizes: 5″x 5″, 3″ x 5, 5″ x 7″, 6″ x 6″, 8″ x 10″, 12″ x 14″ and in round 4″, 6″ and 8″

  • the tools: Speedball or variations of that handy little kit usually with 5 different tools for the same handle, but also some nicer American ones with wooden handles and burnishing tools etc.
  • the brayers: Speedball again in all sizes and a few better Japanese ones… then there are the really really good ones which are somewhat expensive and we do not have enough demand to stock them ((but easy and happy to order these)
  • we have kits of block print inks and also sell individual colours in a variety of brands.

We stock quite a few papers specifically for printmaking, including a wonderful new range of Japanese papers. Please proceed to paper page for more info
