The beauty is hidden on most...

Guest from Maple Grove, MN Posted February 4, 2012
The beauty is hidden on most of these acrylic blanks.once turned it really did look like a swirl of molten metal...great name. I also like that no two are ever alike, makes for interesting turning. I wet sanded and followed up with some car polish with a cleaner in it...then it REALLY came to life.

I did not think it looked...

I did not think it looked nice when I had it but when I finish I was completely shocked and so was my friend. That pen was her favorite at of all others so I gave it to her. Amazing results.!

Have patience in wet sanding

I had a little trouble with my first blank because I was in a rush. the second blank turned out beautifully and looked like the storm systems of Jupiter. When wet sanding acrylester you should gently sand because this type of plastic is softer than acrylic acetate and the grits will push away the plastic leaving grooves rather than remove most of the material with the grit. I find it a little harder to get the high gloss finish with this material but you can get there, it just takes a little more patience.
