    Aluminum inlays ??

    I know I have seen the link before to this but for the life of me I can't seem to find it now. Can someone point me in the right direction please. I think it was aluminum powder or copper powder or something like that mixed up with either CA glue or an epoxy? Am I tweeking anyone with this? I was looking in a craft store today and asked but no one seemed to know what I was talking about.

    Not sure where to find aluminum, but I know some folks get brass filings by the Baggie-full from locksmiths and key shops.

    Belzona and loctite I think have some "castable" aluminum products which are basically expoxy resins with a lot of aluminum dust mixed in. Part of their metal repair products... Not sure if that's what you're talking about or not.
