Great for a quick result (by jenny, 10/08/2016)
Tried these out for the first time the other day and was surprised how well they worked. Really handy for finishing pieces that i don't want to have to get my electric hand polisher out for and also for refreshing all my old scratched ring bands.
Worth every penny! Such a simple way to get a perfect shine (by Charlotte Rosser, 06/01/2015)
This set of polishing papers is by far the best way to make a piece shine. I cut mine into small squares so I can keep them in different places to use with different metals. Working up the grits you get a perfect mirror shine on fired PMC, silver, copper, brass, aluminium etc, you can fold or stick them over a form to use as a file but I prefer to lay them on a rubber block and use a figure 8 motion with the piece to get a scratch free shine every time. I use them for cleaning back oxidation from sterling and copper after using liver of sulphur. I still use them even now I have a tumbler, definitely one of the items in my workshop I wouldn't ever be without! (They last a long time too, so very economical!)
Really pleased with the result (by Sheila Franklin, Cheshire, 04/12/2012)
I have used the polishing papers on hand made sterling silver ear-wires and I'm really pleased with the result. I cut a piece off each one and wrapped it around an emery board to use it. I was contemplating buying a tumbler but for the amounts I need to polish I wasn't sure sure it would be worth it.Very pleased to have found the polishing papers as a much cheaper alternative!
Clean to use & excellent polish (& a tip for using) (by Hannah, 07/06/2011)
I've recently been using these quite a lot for polishing pieces of precious metal clay and other small silver items that I have made. They are really easy to use, clean and quickly build up to a surprisingly brilliant high polish. Particularly good if you are making jewellery at home unlike most other polishing options they don't make a mess. As each sheet is really quite big and can be cut into smaller pieces - the pack will last you absolutely ages. My top tip for using these would be to mark numbers on the sheets with a pen to indicate the order to use them in as I often forget which colour to use first!
Good value and a perfect substitute for polishing by power tools. (by H Reynolds, Somerset , 15/05/2011)
I find polishing papers great for small jobs where a mop might not fit. Wrapped around a match stick they can get into the smallest spaces. Give a lovely shine. Good value and a perfect substitute for polishing by power tools.
