I am trying to find information on how to polish a vintage lucite bangle bracelet (that i acquired on Ebay). It has a few dull patches that i would like to polish up…
i searched the archives but had no luck finding information.
Any advise would be appreciated.
Hi Julie try Brasso followed by Silvo which are just liquid polishes used for hand polishing brass and silver ware.
Lucite is an acrylic plastic. There are polishes made specifically for acrylic.
ok, thank you! (duh! i did not think to research that!…i was stuck on it being a piece of jewelry!)
I suffer from this often!
I’ve been collecting and selling vintage costume jewelry for over 25 years, and I’ve always used the Novus 3-part (3 bottle) system for cleaning plastics and removing slight scratches and abrasions. The 3 bottles have 3 levels of abrasion. You can buy it on Amazon or many/most jewelers supply shops.
thank you so much for sharing that! i have been collecting information…have not yet made my attempt at polishing😂
