Have some sat in a tin here but imagine it would cost a fortune to post!! Very heavy.

It is still in the tin because the bit I used as a test was utter rubbish - could not find a magnet that would stay on the wall let alone hold something with it.

What were you going to use it for? I only ask in case the solution I found works. I got from Ikea some metal strips that you screw into the wall and then you can paint them with normal paint to hide them if you want. They are called Spontan.

i was going to pain a area of dd'd bedroom was for her school pictures. i read on one of the websites you have to do 2 coats and you can also buy special magnets that must be stronger than normal ones, but not usre how much they are
