replicate the scale pattern on the T-rex, plaster casting tiles for 1/20 figures, I used 5 minute epoxy for a few part replications  and some clear epoxy for something, I don't remember what for......

  These guys look to be the one-stop-shop for any and all of this  :   http://www.alumilite.com/

  They make a version   , or versions   :    http://www.alumilite.com/store/pg/47-Mold-Making-Alumilite-Mold-Making-Casting-Materials.aspx

  They show Hobby Lobby as a retailer  ,    I'll have to see what all they stock next time I'm in there  ,,,,

Make sure to check the jewelry section as well with Hobby Lobby, quite often the same product will be in both departments and in the jewelry section it is often cheaper because they sell more of it.

  Ah !     Good suggestion   :)

 They have DIFFERENT pricing for the same products  ?!
   LAME  .
Hmmmmm     --  I need to pay more attention  ,
                                                                       I'm still surprised they still mark everything with a pricing gun   ....

   Pffffft !   not surprised by that    ::)

  The worst thing / crazyness is they can't look up an item's price by scanning it .
So much of the inventory   -- well , ALL of it ?  -- they ring up with no real descriptor and so many things have identical prices .

  How in the world they keep track of inventory is beyond me 

 About 6 weeks ago a friend of mine stopped by one and was doing me a favor to grab a little bottle of the Vallejo Model Color  ... ( with photo of same I sent to his phone )
 Never found it  .
I told him go to the isle with all the plastic kits   -- all the ones I've been in are set up the same  ,,, as far as what is grouped together in what isles .

 So  - OK  ,    he couldn't find it  but he says he asked 2 workers and a manager and they couldn't find it  .
  ????!!!!

 I'm thinking  " WTH  , they stopped carrying Vallejo ? "

 A few days later I made it in there and walked right to the display   --- right where it's always been .

I know I never ask someone who works there where something is, they just don't know.....
