Edmund Optics– supplier of lenses and other cool stuff. I’ve ordered their lens grab bag of lenses. The bag cost about $8.00 and you get 20 lenses in varying sizes. Some small, others a little larger – all useful for assemblage art as well as jewelry.
Aves – Maker of a very cool two part paste called: Apoxie Paste – that is workable with water (for smoothing and thinning) for about 40 minutes, still flexible for about 1hr. Eventually, it hardens to rock hard. Great for sculpting. It’s also an adhesive medium. Takes paint wet or dry. Aves also carries other fabulous products.
