Hi there. My name is Angela. I’m heading up the development of OSU’s
craft center metals dept… I’m usually resourceful and all that, but
I’m bumping into raw material sourcing issues. As we are a state
program, not to mention an arts one, our budget is… well…
workable but far from extravagant. No surprise, I’m just thankful
for what we have. I want to stock our raw materials but Rio is
sortof spendy as we have yet to get a rolling mill, shear, etcetc.
Heh, my best buys so far have been the Findingking and RonsRocks on
Ebay. Do an of you have a good price source for copper/brass/silver
sheet etc? I’ve a great deal on 22g. copper sheet, 12"x10’ for 26$
with 15$ or so for shipping. That’s fabulous. But sourcing the
crafty type 36g. copper foil or thicker stock or any other metal has
been rather slow. Craft stores are the most promising for foil but
their prices make me gag. Ok, I ramble. More sleep, less tea. Sorry.
LSS, what’s your best metals source? Thanks, Angela
