You can do this with a linoleum block. Get a block that’s already mounted on a wood base (it’s actually particle-board), then you’ll need one piece of museum board to lift it to type-high (I think 2-ply is enough). The golden color is supposed to be easier to carve than ‘battleship gray’, but I’m not sure if this comes pre-mounted.Linoleum tends to print ‘salty’, with little white specks, like an all-over texture. To get it to print more solid, you can sand down the linoleum with fine-grit sand paper, or maybe steel wool, until the surface is smooth. It also helps if you over ink a bit.If you don’t want to mess with all of this, you can also get it as a polymer plate – I did this with some large bands of color I needed to print. They weren’t as wide as 3″, but they printed fine.
