You asked for it, so you're getting it! Introducing both Raw and Polished Brass! You can read all about it on the Blog.

To make the names of our cast metals more clear, we've modified our naming structure. What was previously just Silver, is now called Raw Silver denoting it's rough unpolished finish. Glossy Silver will now be called Polished Silver. Premium will remain Premium. Note that this naming structure is also being used for Brass

Excellent! This was exactly what I was hoping for. I've already put an order in Very Happy

Glad to see the new materials beginning to flow in after the relative drought. Hopefully we'll see some more in the coming months!

PS: was there a thread for suggesting new materials? I thought there was, but I've lost it.
