Need supplies?

If anybody needs carving medium for the explosion of Spring boxes I'm sure folks are planning, I'm headed to St Louis both this weekend and next for training. I need to pick up a few things so I'm going to try and hit up Dick Blick for supplies. They sell the "grey stuff", I think its officially called Soft-Kut. If anyone would like a block of it I would be more than happy to pick it up. I think it runs about $4 for a 6" X 12", $5 for a 9" X 12" and $8 for a 12" X 18"sheet...a huge bargain compared to other materials! Send me an e-mail or post a reply if you want some.

Where is the Dick Blick store? I go to St Louis EVERY weekend and might have to stop by and check out the goodies! I guess I could just google it but I'd rather talk to friends! Thanks!

If you do have the chance to stop by Blick's, we could use a 5x12 piece. Thanks.

I can definitely use some of that grey stuff for sure. I sent you an email through LBNA, but LBNA is acting very funny tonight and it gave me a lot of exceeded disk warning messages, but it said the email was sent. If you don't get it let me know, and I will email you when I am able to get up to my normal computer. I am in bed with a nasty case of the flu and using an old notebook pc which I don't have configured for email. Thanks.

I stopped at Dick Blick in both ST. Louis and Iowa City, IA at the end of February and bought out the entire stock-on-hand of the gray "Soft-Kut" 9x12 and 12x18. While I am sure they have since acquired more, if OMGB comes back empty-handed, let me know. I bought extra expecting to be able to re-sell it at cost in Columbia for those that wanted some. If you want less than 9x12 I'd be happy to cut off a chunk for you. Send me an e-mail at difoxfire@hotmail.com and we can discuss.

FYI, to get to the Dick Blick store in St.Louis, take US 40/61 to the Hanley St. exit (by Trader Joes). Head north about a mile to Maryland and turn left. Go a few blocks until you see Dick Blick on the right in a building that looks like a house. Parking is available on the street or behind the store. It's a fairly small store so if you want something specific, you may wish to call ahead.

Thanks for the info. I usually travel down 40.
