Looking for Niello


#1

Earlier this year Larry Hancock from NC posted that he had niello
for sale. I looked it up in the Orchid archive, found the posting but
with the current archive format, I couldn’t find his email address.
If anyone has it or if Larry sees this post, will you please contact
me. I’m interested in doing some pieces with niello but I’m not set
up to make it right now. Thanks.

I responded to him wanting to buy some of his Niello from his
original offer & never heard back. Don’t know if my inquire was lost
or he never produced any for sale. Mark Chapman

Chris, if you’re interested in ordering Niello from abroad I’ve seen
it listed in the Karl Fischer (Germany, www.fischer-pforzheim.de)
catalog (2003, p.201). They list is as “Tula”, presumably the German
word for Niello, it comes finely powdered, runs 6 euros for 10 grams
or 50 euros for 100 grams, product number 7625.

I have no experience with this particular product though I’ve been
very impressed with the other things I’ve ordered from them. They
ship quite promptly and generally offer very high quality stuff.

Usual disclaimer: no affiliation with them, just a happy customer.

Cheers,
