I found quicklime at a regional industrial supply company. They sell it by the ton. Quicklime can be purchased in various grain sizes. I used the nugget size -about 1/2 inch rocks- so the dust was minimal. Proper eye and skin protection is needed. Members of this list make it sound extremely dangerous. I would say that it is like most things- be aware of what you are doing and you should have no problems. If the reaction seems to be getting out of control- stir more and/or add more water. Start with a small mix and see what the reaction looks like. It is a lot of fun once you put the fear behind you. I slaked a ton (over the course of a month) and it has been aging for 4 months now. A ton makes a lot of putty! The lime putty is available for sale. If anyone is interested please contact me off-list.
