Salvaged lead is my latest great discovery to get excited about. Bought in sheets by the weight (indescribably heavy, I struggled to get a small roll of it to the car). I can see myself using this for a while to come. The magic is in it's pliability. It's really soft and can be cut with general use scissors. Also of course the patina.
Another great discovery: in my fathers garage - these hole punch tools which are for paper or leather but to work on the lead.
A dilemma : to use textiles or not?
