  • Anodized Aluminum?

    Anyone used it?...... what thickness do ppl use in jewellery so it doesn't bend and can it be cut with scissors or die cuts?
    Suppliers too?
    Have used recycled aluminum cans but a bit thin for what l was thinking of

    I dont have a set supplier. I bought my last lot of ali from ebay they had thicknesses from 0.3mm up to industrial thickness. and dont rule out drinks cans the base of the can is a lot thicker than the sides and has a lovely dome which can be put to good use. a recent batch of ali I had was someone was throwing out an old caravan almost ran out of places to store it all flat

    almost forgot the first question, the thickness depends on what you are making and is the ali hardened the larger the object the thicker it needs to be for something about the size of a 50p of rolled 2mm should be ok
