[Supplier] Jeweller's pumice


#1

Hi there. This question arose only because I am on the East coast,
and nobody here carries Pumice powder of the type or coarseness that
we use at the Art College. Normally I buy pumice powder from
Gesswein Canada in Toronto, but at 4.50 a pound (plus shipping) this
gets a little pricey. Can anyone suggest a supplier, either in
Canada or the Eastern States, that I can purchase pumice from in,
say, 20 lb. drums or boxes?

Thanks for any help,
Danny

Hi Danny, While I can’t be sure of they type or coarseness of the
pumice powder you used in school, I can pick it up locally at any
True-Value hardware store. It is usually found in the area of
painting supplies. I suspect any full service hardware store will
have something. Whether or not it meets your expectations for pumice
is another matter…

All the best,
