Dear customers, due to shortages in packaging supplies during this pandemic, please take note that we might substitute the packaging with something similar, i.e. it might not be exactly same as the one pictured here. However, rest assured that the amount of material will not be affected. Thank you for your kind understanding.

Students and customers always ask us this same question, "How do you polish resin without the need for buffing machines or power tools?"

We have 2 amazing solutions for you, and which solution you should go for depends on the original appearance of your resin piece and the final effect that you are trying to achieve.

 

1) Manual polishing by hand:

You can manually polish your resin piece using this resin polishing kit which comes with 30ml resin polishing compound and a micro-fiber polishing cloth.

This method works best to restore shine in dull and faded resin surfaces, such as resin casts that appear dull as a result of an overused mould. However, please take note that it will not result in a 'wet', high gloss appearance.

This method will not work for deeply scratched pieces. If your pieces are deeply scratched, we recommend using jewellery-grade sandpaper to remove the scratches, prior to polishing your piece.

 

2) Spray your resin piece with clear gloss varnish:

If you wish to achieve a high gloss, 'wet' appearance, we recommend using Krylon's clear gloss spray. This is the best quick fix if you do not want to polish or sand your pieces.

By spraying multiple layers of Krylon's clear gloss spray over your resin piece, your once dull or matt resin piece will instantly have a high shine, glossy, 'wet' appearance.
