I've actually done several carvings, but this is by far and away my favorite one. I actually used a stamp ink pad to ink this one after seeing how much finer you can carve when you're using a thinner ink. I might go back to using the roller and speedball stuff, but for right now this is a lot faster and less messy for just paper projects. The colors are more limited, but you can do a variety of colors in one print very very quickly. I used it to make covers for my zines!
