  • 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

          I checked out www.ULine.com We used them years ago at the company I used to work at, and they were really reputable to work with. They have machines, guns, bags, and film. I just don't really know what works best, as well as if there is a really great priced to buy from. To date I've been a frugal...

          Well, I used to get my shrink wrap rolls from AC Moore, and just used the last roll😟. I use a heat gun but lately and only shrink the Sealife puzzles to keep the pieces in place. I only use it on puzzles because of my display board otherwise I would have broken pieces all over the place. Also easier...

          He’s gotten me through some pretty tough times and always has my back so It’s the least I can do. Good thing I had the freezer stocked! That has been a time saver. I made a pot of chili on Sunday and got 6 meals out of it! As for payback, I’m getting a new shed in the spring! I had to do my flap...

          We did. I only went $40 over budget. I got a 73” x 12” x 3/4” curly cherry for $55. Just needs to be run through the sander and cut to size. It’s a pinkish cherry and is so pretty. A piece of deep red redwood, 2 pieces of walnut each about 12” wide. Good haul.
