Re: aluminum shavings

gunnerat, COOL. good for you. I'm going to make more either tomorrow or the next day depending on when I get more shavings. I found a metal shavings source, I think stainless steel and titanium, and they are supposed to arrive tomorrow night.

Be sure that you use enough activator, my first batch is no good because I read the directions on the resin wrong, and didn't use enough. I had a problem with a nieghbor at the shop yesterday, and brought one of mine into work today, it made a big difference.

Our student, who is into this stuff from a different direction, wants some for her workplace, which has gotten pretty nasty, and she is getting me the shavings. I'll see what I get, I'm anxious to try more. The copper chore boys worked very well, I just didn't use enough, and my towerbusters are kind of a layer of resin on top of the crystal and copper embedded mix. They don't care, they work really well anyway.

I need to make a set for my shop, and some for my yard, and some for my student, then I can start working over the neighboring areas. I think that the material is not only enrgetic, but quite beautiful, and has a lot of potential as jewelry.

It's making a big difference already. Good luck, use enough activator, and stir it until it thickens. My second set I put the metal into the resin before I poured, and that seemed to work better for me.
