Where to buy cork?
Posted 03 February 2005 - 01:53 PM
I'm looking for flat sheets of a decent thickness for my minis (mostly Reaper DHL).
All I can find is really really thin (like maybe 2mm at most) sheets at my local Michael's. Does anyone have any suggestions on where I might look? (Types of stores really, since I may not have specific store in my area).
Anyway, thanks for helping out the clueless.
On a happy note, last week I bought myself a Dremel! Man those things are handy...

I don't know how thick it was, but I cut it in half to use it (after I've cut out a small square).
BTW - It was in the office supply section, not the crafts section.

If you want small, thick pieces, buy some wine. (j/k)
Some office supply stores.
You could even check out Home Improvement centers like Home Depot or Lowes.

x2 12" x 24" Sheets
It is roughly 2 mm thick, but I layer to my preferred height and plaster the sides so there's no visual difference in my opinion. Plus, I find it much easier to work with thin sheets than thick pieces. Unless you're going for the craggy rocky cliff image where . . . sorry, I was rambling.

In the US - check maybe building supply stores, hardware outlets, flooring or tile specialists....

Cheap and multi-purpose...now that's my kind of suggestion!
You may be able to find cork coaster at your grocery store. They usually sell them in packs of ten and can be found in the party isle. They are cheap and can be thrown at people who interupt you while painting.

Another source of cork is a decent bar. Wine corks are made of .. cork. Well, most of them are. Break them up and you get nice boulders.
