To all those knowledgeable & experienced people out there who have been
answering lots of ?'s that I didn’t ask but wanted info on, thank you.
Does anyone have a source/sources for large (4" +) copper circles,ovals,
etc.? Maybe even shallow bowl type shapes. Thank you in advance.
(we just got our first snow on the mountains in Anchorage yesterday)
Enameling supply places usually carry these. I have some from Schlaifer’s
here in So.Cal. - nice people.
Their website is: http://www.enameling.com

Deb, I buy 4x8 foot sheet of copper from a metal company that normally
sells to roofers who use it to put fancy trim on expensive buildings. I
ask for a ‘second’ sheet, one which has damage, sometimes just a scratch or
gouge and get it for about 2/3 off. The last one I bought was about $50.
It is cut with a makita jig saw I put a wooden sole plate on. One sheet
will last the occasional hobbyist ten years or so. Four 6 inch bowls per
square foot times 32 square feet is a lot of bowls. Little pieces of copper
add up to be more expensive. Geo.
Nobody mentioned Thompson enamels as a source for bowls and sheet copper
did they? But I know we have talked about them as an enameling source
Or you could go straight to the source (where Thompson orders from)
American Metalcraft, Inc. (708) 345-1177. This is a wholesale seller so you
need to order more than just a couple of pieces, but not a whole lot. Ask
for the “craft” catalog.
