I would like to purchase powdered graphite, but can't find it anywhere.  Does
anyone know where I can get some?
Thanks much,

Try the lubricant area of your hardware store also used to lubricate
locks so try locksmith

  Powder graphite also comes in a spray can (like paint). Works very well on
sand casting. Faster and less of a mess then  the smoky black flame from an
acectalyne torch.

I have purchased in the past powder graphite at  McMaster Carr in
Chicago, sorry I do not have the # at home here. Comes in one pound
cans. I bought four,and have two unopened ones left Would be glad to
sell them.

It's used a coloring material or filler in some sculptures. You may be
able to get it from a sculpture studio suppliers.

  Are you sure this is graphite and not carbon black?  You may be right but it
seems a costly alternative just for color.

Yes it is graphite. Its not the same as carbon black which is
recommended for resins. I think (but am not sure) that this is intended
for application after casting on plaster/concrete for interior use.
