Pewter...

(This is actual for casting toy soldiers, but...)

 

Where can I get lead-free pewter and how much does it cost?

Thanks. I emailed Mimmic, as they only advertise rolls of pewter foil.

There are also a number of companies that use pewter, as well as arts and crafts groups that do pewter "classes". Maybe email them and request contact details for pewter ingot suppliers. I suspect that you may have to come to CT - not sure whether you'll find anything in the Southern Cape - although there may be a supplier in George?

 

Good luck... Love tin soldiers - remind me of my childhood (loooong ago) - we used to paint them - and then lose them in sandheaps.

I just realised a very important point: We're on BidorBuy, so how about somebody listing pewter ingots for sale?

You could also try Heritage Crafts in Johannesburg. Not sure if they've got pewter but they seem to carry stock of things for almost every hobby/craft.
