  • Iron Powder

    This are raw iron particles havested from Lake Chaplain. I'm working on a better (faster) way to separate them from them beach sand. When the weather warms and the lake goes down I'll be able to get to much cleaner sources. Most of the sand that you see in the pix are small pieces of ore that still have enough iron in them to be drawn to the magnets.
    Thought it would make great whisker stubble or fur areas in portrait work. You could also make area that magnets can be used for products ans displays. If you think about it there must be tons of ideas out there. I hope there are many suggestions posted.
    If you are interested send me a SASE and I'll send you a sample.
    Two may want to use 2 stamps because of weight so I can send you enough for a good sample.
    I found it commercially available online for about $25 a pound.
    If enough are interested I'll make it available. Unfortunately I can't do it free but it will be far less than above.
    I won't say any more here as I'm already pushing the classified rule.
    If you have questions PM or Email me.

      Great idea. I'm thinking more on the lines of a sand garden type of thing. Gotta play with this one., Thanks again

          Whatever way you decide to do if you are happy and your brother in law is happy it was a good idea. If you really want to be brave use it as a learning experience. Make several of them using different suggestions and see the difference....

          Well, unfortunately, I have also decided to let my subscription lapse. I've been debating it for the past couple years. It isn't so much the money, but it's more the disappointment when yet another issue has so little in it that really appeals to me. The final straw was this past Fall/Winter edition...

          Thanks to all !😀 Your comment are very good and make sense!

          My piece is 8"X8" X 1/2" thick.
          I though when I cutted the piece to do it in 1 piece or 4/5 , but after a while I decided to do it in one piece and carved it to have a 3D aspect.
          Was it a good idea.....?...

          Great designe! I would have gone a bit further than Linda, Scott and Gladefade I would cut it into more pieces to make shaping easier. Taper the clouds from right to left, taper the wings so that they are lower where they attach to the body. Taper the neck so that it looks like it is going into the...

          The never ending dilemma. I only get two magazines SSWWC and Wood carving Illustrated. Even if I don't make something in every issue there is usually something in each one that I have never tried and that will either challenge or inspire me. Yes I know that I do test cutting for them and they have occasionally...
