I'm trying to polish glass nuggets. When they are wet they look perfect but as soon as they dry, they have a white powder-like coating. Any suggestions on how to keep that sparkling "wet" look? Thanks,
The Jooltool® Sharpening and Polishing System and/or tumbling the glass nuggets in a rock tumbler with abrasive and polishing media are good ways to get the glass to the next phase of polish, so they are sparkling all the time. If the nuggets are faceted, however, use care when using either tool so you do not affect the facets.
A thin coat of a Mona Lisa™ Metal Leaf™ sealant can be applied for a glossy finish. This finish will wear over time and may need to be reapplied. Follow package directions for best results.
