Versatile and gorgeous

Comments On Dec 25, 2020:I've used all 3, and am now on my third order of brass and copper. Rather than use CA glue, as other respondents have described as problematic, I mix with a rather slow setting epoxy (System Three) to a pasty consistency. That assures full mixture of the fine particles, and in turn, it sags into complex voids and secures those structurally and artistically. With the slow set, there's time for air bubbles to work their way out, and that is a blessing. It's a little slower that way, agreed, but the results are worth it. I use the CA glue only for little weeny gaps. I also agree with the person who advocated the curlicue brass filings--neat texture--and I mix that with the fine brass, so no ugly gaps full of resin.

Love these!

Comments On Dec 03, 2019:I have used both the brass and copper powder. Some I repaired blemishes, some I did a designed inlay. All worked beautifully! Highly recommend.

Love this stuff

Comments On Aug 30, 2017:I've used it, mixed with epoxy to fill voids, and it works very well. Some reviewers have remarked that the powder is too fine for use with thin CA. I have not tried using it that way, but I can say that the consistency is perfect for mixing with epoxy.

Beautiful way to fill voids and cracks

Comments On Dec 22, 2016:I use the copper version all the time, it looks especially good with cherry burl pieces that have a lot of surprise cracks and voids. It takes some practice to keep from washing out too much of the powder, but after a few tries, it goes well. Very thin CA is a must, and you can't be too heavy handed with the glue! A detail glue tip, free of buildup helps a lot as well.
This is a must have item in my turning shop and if you have a little patience (and some practice pieces), you will find yourself reaching for it as well.
I haven't tried the aluminum or brass finish yet, but I'm ordering the brass today

Practice, Practice, Practice!

Comments On Dec 02, 2013:I bought the Aluminum, I agree with the previous comment. This powder is extremely fine. Thin CA glue is definitely a must, but it does tend to wash away some of the particles as you are putting it on. Work slowly and Practice, Practice, Practice before using on final product ! The inlay void needs to have a very sharp outline with very sharp edges if you want the finish product to display properly. I experimented with this and it looks like I just drew a line with a silver sharpee.

Nice looking when done, but too fine!

Comments On Feb 14, 2013:I have used the copper & brass product extensively. I can tell you that having fresh thin CA is IMPORTANT. However, even with this, this metal is so fine that the CA does not always wick into it because it's so fine and compact. I have made my own shavings using files, and sometimes mix the two for better results. I implore Craft Supplies USA to find and offer a larger particle, like a 30 mesh size. The larger the particle, the easier for the glue to wick. The flip side to this is that the larger the metal particles, the more black (dried CA) you will see in between the metal particles.
The aluminum is the hardest to use because it tends to cake. Also, it is the lightest and doesn't sink as fast as Brass and copper. Copper seems to work the best.
