Each of these curving efforts is accomplished upon the foam block. Don shared that this is a SpeedBall linoleum printing block, which is a gray-ish, hard rubber block (see pic 1). He shared that he learned the usefulness of these from Mark Becht, who use to use the avatar Shrike on this forum. Again, these may be purchased from Dick Blick, like the straight needles.
