Fordite

For a long time now I’ve wanted to work with this rough.  This is paint over spray from the old car factories.  They used to move the cars through on rails, paint ’em and bake ’em.  This is the build up from the rails.  Which means it can be an odd shape.  As you work them layers are revealed.  Some of the paints are metallic.  Although the name was coined using a certain manufacturer- this rough is available from many different manufacturers.

This material is also known as Detroit Motor Agate.

Fordite Rough

I’m looking forward to working this material. I have this piece and one other.
