    so i went on Neuberg to look at getting some Multileaf aluminum.
    Guess

    what they wanted for shipping when i contacted them about it. one 3oz bottle

    shipping for it would have been $25 plus.
    after i emailed them. they said it would be $30.66.

    WTF????

    oh cuz it’s flammable. so is the box they put it in.

    i know it’s crazy. here’s one of the replies


    Dear Brad,


    The item you specified is Multileaf Aluminum No 20 is a flammable item. We normally put that in a small box for metallic powders. The US$30.66 shipping cost is if you call or email us directly as it includes handling fee compared to a website order that would be less as no handling fee, in this case its US$25.


    In as much we would want to send the Multileaf Aluminum No 20 via USPS we are unable to do so as it is a flammable item.


    Unfortunately, the situation is beyond my control and I am sorry about that.


    Thank you,

    I had the same issue that why I just went to Amazon to purchase the powder paints. I got the aluminum and Gold leaf. Saving money, I went to Ebay to get Cosmetic Applicators as every store within 25 miles of my home had zero. trying to finish a few fish.
