Aluminum powder for paint.
|Aluminum powder for paint.
I had been having trouble finding aluminum powder in local paint stores, and was starting to wonder if its distribution had been restricted (because it is explosive under certain conditions, see story under previous aluminum powder samples). But it turns out you can still buy it in a well-stocked paint or artists' supply store, as I did with this bottle of very fine aluminum powder. It is intended to be mixed in with other paints or paint bases to make shiny metallic paint.
I bought this powder from a store in New York when I was visiting there with my six-year-old daughter Addie: You can read about our visit here.
