Build your sculptures with beautiful, VIVIDLY colored sticks, lovingly hand cut in my shop. I can make many different colors by combining RIT dye powders - please inquire before purchasing. Also, I may have offcuts available for a lower price.

1 inch of a stick is about 0.14 grams, so 1/4lb (113g) is about 800 inches of sticks. You choose how you want them cut - minimum 3 inches, maximum 8 inches.

Guaranteed number of sticks for common lengths (divide 800 by the length):
- 3 inch sticks: 265
- 4 inch sticks: 200
- 5 inch sticks: 160
- 6 inch sticks: 130
- 7 inch sticks: 114
- 8 inch sticks: 100

I always add 10% more sticks (by weight) to guarantee that you receive right number of good sticks.

Due to the simplicity of my facility (little outdoor shack and coleman stove), I am unable to do perfect color matching. I will, however send you the dye recipe I use, so that I can attempt to reproduce it in the future. I recommend that you buy all the sticks you will need of each color at one time so that I can do them all in one batch.

The sticks are round, made of 1/8 inch bamboo skewers. I currently use RIT dye, but I am taking suggestions and will maybe expand to natural dyes.

Here is the RIT Dye color formula page. http://www.ritdye.com/colorit_color_formula_guide

Depending on the popularity of this offer, I will offer a wider range of sizes, colors, and types of sticks in the future, so please share the posting!
