I would like to work directly with bronze. does anyone know a
source (preferably UK but I don't mind) where I could buy small
quantities in sheet form, or wire?
Metal Supermarkets stock non-ferrous metals and are quite happy to
sell very small amounts, but they are not cheap. There are branches
all over the country and Google is your friend.
If you live near to Birmingham, try Edwards Metals, Unit 37a, Birch
Rd East, Birmingham, B6 7DA, Tel: 0121 322 2366. They are certainly
worth a try.
