    I looked at some past threads and I am not clear on parts of this issue.

    As I check the internet, I see that I cannot purchase Envirotex at Lowe's or at Home Depot. I can purchase Envirotex at Michael's and maybe Hobby Lobby. True or not? Anyone with actual experience?

    Envirotex Lite seems to be the only thing available? I guess Envirotex was too toxic. [img]smile.gif[/img] (Probably was.)

    Some have use Famowood? Is this a type of Envirotex substitute?

    Thanks for the info. I am not so much interested in its application or use, but the actual purchase of the item seems to be in doubt, at least in South Texas. Thanks again.

    Famowood works equally as well as Envirotex or WS Water.

    You can buy it at Home Depot.

    Can't speak for South Texas, but here in the Boston area Envirotex always seems to be in stock at Michaels.

    Famowood worked for me and is cheaper than Envirotex.

    I have never tried Famowood. I am in the process of putting in a log pond for a new sawmill. The best price I found for Envirotex light was at Jerry's Artarama. I just bought my second gallon from them (big pond).

    Their price on a gallon is $46.99 if I remember correctly plus $11.95 shipping. That is about 1/2 the price that I found at the local Micheals store. They didn't have the gallon size at the Micheals.

    Watching for replies . . .

    Envirotex here in Albuquerque is sometimes availbale, sometimes not. My local art store carries it (on and off) in the small quantities, not the larger ones. I'm looking at Famowood from Lowe's. But I've never seen large quantities there.

    ncng, that is a good price compared to what I paid. A gallon is a lot! Pete Nolan, did you use a gallon to make all your water?

    Unless you are making Lake Superior in scale, a gallon is a hell of a lot of mix. From the pictures Flash has posted it doesn't look like much more than a quart will be needed.
