Hi! Thanks! I wouldn’t say it’s “easier” to carve… but there are things about it that make it easier for me to work with - it holds tiny lines incredibly well and it’s completely smooth so large flat areas tend to print quite evenly. Also, it’s VERY affordable - a huge bonus for me, especially when I’m working on something large! It’s really hard on your tools, though. I keep a sharpening stone beside me AT ALL TIMES when I’m carving. You should totally try it! Good luck!
