Good Morning,

What do you think about posting sources for supplies and/or suppliers in the different forums? I often see things and would love to know where I can order or go to purchase the supplies.

Excellent idea Chris. Will you help populate the list?

We use sources from the most unlikely places (recycled items from all over the place) due to the nature of our creations. But I think this would be an awesome thing to have here in the Nook.

I have started a new forum for that and we can start new threads for different types of resources. That way it's easy for folks to find just what they need.

Here is a link to the new forum. Please be sure to WATCH the new forum for new information.

Thanks Janet! I will help where I can, but mostly woodworking is my main focus. I'm at work now but will try to get to it tonight.

Chris,
Gino orders clay (which I know you use) in bulk from Dick Blick.He needs huge amounts of it to make the size of sculpture he makes. (Your'e talking sculpey, right?) He only needs the white, as he makes a mold of the mother and then reworks. (in most cases)
I have seen the colored clays there that you use, and you'll still get a discount if you enter the site as I mention further down :)
Anyway, he orders 25 lb. blocks, and colors it up with pulvers if it's an original. (those are all mine!) He also uses canola oil to make it more flexible. Here's where you come in: Try to get an account with them as a 'teacher' when you fill out the form. You'll get the discount price and acct. number. Of course, they are online. I hope I could help Smiling
PS Here's the definition of pulvers, just scroll down, it's in alphabetical order: http://ginodiavonti.com/text/reference-p.html

Thanks for the info and hint on the clay Lynxx! I use Premo, but they probably have that too. I must be blind though - I couldn't find pulvers on the list.
