So far I have bought all of my 1-inch wide, 6-inch long brass strips "Stamping Blanks" as well as copper and aluminum online from GoodyBeads.com. I have also bought these kinds of materials from eBay. Also check stamping blanks at rings-things.com. - DaveThanks for the info. I will try to find a good 2 part epoxy. What is a good thing to use for brass? Is there sheets or something better.
