Jewelry designer Jude Wroblewski shows you how to use sanding sticks and sanding rolls that come in multiple grits to help you refine non-ferrous metals, wood and polymer clay jewelry creations.

: : : Materials : : :

The sanding sticks and rolls are available in 240-, 600- and 1000-grit.

Use the desired grit to sand down non-ferrous metals, wood or polymer clay. Once one side of the stick is worn down, simply peel off the top layer to reveal a new layer. Each sanding stick has four layers on each side for a total of eight layers of sandpaper.

Tips: Use a sanding roll with Foredom® or Jooltool™ flex shaft to get into rounded areas such as rings or tubes.
