The 5 First Steps to Finishing Your Work

Ruby Tomes

1. Check your work.

Is it ready to start the finishing process? Work should have about 2-3 even coats of enamel, with no pits or blemishes.

2. The Stoning Process.

There are many abrasives available in different grades of coarseness (e.g. carborundum stones, diagrit). Rachel prefers to use a medium grade rectangular piece of diagrit, mounted on a Perspex handle. Choose a good support for work (e.g. wooden block) and use lots of water.
