Fordite- Detroit Agate- Get Yours While You Can!!!!

May 31, 2014

As of May 1, 2014 due to some new articles and social media there has been a REMARKABLE demand for Fordite worldwide. The popularity of this material is unprecedented. I have sold over 50 one of a kind Fordite pieces this month & have gone through my stash…and back up stash. I have a great relationship with a woman in Michigan who has been collecting it for many, many years. She is still supplying me so hopefully I won’t run out for now! Eventually genuine Fordite will run out though….so get yours while you can!

*What I have available for sale can be found in my Etsy online store:

It is called FORDITE or DETROIT AGATE. This material was created many years ago at the Ford Rouge Plant just outside of Detroit, Michigan. Layer upon layer, paint over-spray built up on metal racks that transported new car bodies through the paint shop, and into the oven, where each coat was baked hard. This process of painting cars is no longer used so the material is rare & coveted. It’s a piece of Michigan history!!!

***Due to the recent surge in popularity of Fordite (also known as Detroit Agate) there has been a lot of material being sold as Fordite that is not authentic Fordite at all. Do your research before making a decision & feel free to contact me with any questions you may have about the material. I’ve been working with it for several years now & have a lot of experience with it. The Fordite I use originates from the automotive plants in my home of Detroit, Michigan (the true home of Fordite). We are proud to be called the Motor City & I think it is so cool that the recycling of our old automotive paint has become popular worldwide!
