Hi, I have had a tumbler for a short while now and acting on advice
from a friend I have been using ceramic media. After finding that
it gives a frosted looking finish rather than a bright polish I
started trying to find out what is best to use… this is what I
understand from my research, can someone please confirm or deny that
this is correct:
First, use ceramic media as an abrasive media to clean up casts etc
and also (?) to work on firescale.
Second, use steel shot as a burnishing medium for a bright polish.
Third, use rouge impregnated walnut shells for a high brigh finish.
Also, can someone please explain how the rouge and walnut shells
should be used? Is this meant to be used dry with the walnut shells
and powdered rouge? I read in a catalogue that is should be used
dry with steel shot - is this correct?
