Wow. I think I found my favorite new project. Cleaning and polishing metal! It is so utterly satisfying! What an immediate result. Always trying to do what I can at home since I only get to visit Agnes once a week. I thought I would take a stab at working on a few pieces of trim I have at home and seeing if the process worked. Goodness, did it! I found the most perfect tutorial here~ Shine me up!
I was able to do everything exactly except the bench grinder. I instead bought a cotton buffing pad for my drill and it was easy to use and worked fairly well, I think. A few nicks in the metal when I wasn't paying attention to the angle, but not bad for a practice piece. Now I just want to polish everything tomorrow!
|All the necessary supplies|
|Gettin ready to buff|
|I think it looks wonderful! :D|
Oh Agnes, you are going to be so sparkly!
....continued again with the polishing. This time in the rain. Yay! Watching paint bubble and scraping it off is most fun.
|Got some work to do. You can see the finished middle piece below.|
