Source for Acrylic Blocks

I've turned handle parts (butt cap, trim rings, reel seat insert, winding check) from a block of acrylic on a recent build and it worked very well. that block was multi-colored and it worked for that build but now I want to find a source for solid colored acrylic blocks for a current build. My original source was Woodcraft but they don't carry 1 1/2" X 1 1/2" X 6" blocks in solid colors. I'm looking for black by the way.
can anyone point me to source for solid acrylic blocks for turning?

Thanks Matt! Exactly what I was looking for on my rod build plus I can get parts to repair a broken duck call!

If you have access to Facebook, check out Swampwood Products. He's doing some outstanding looking stuff combining wood and acrylic as well as solid acrylic. Doesn't have a website that's up and running but you can message him and he responds pretty quickly.

I have a guy custom pour mine. It's been working out great. You can pick your colors, and end up with enough to do at least one grip, usually two if you cut it right. I could pass along his info if you'd like. Hit me up via email: coosawrods@gmail.com
