Polishing buffs


#1

hello, as someone who wants to learn & practice stone setting &
finishing with gold, i like the idea of hand polishing to start with,
rather than jump straight to using a flex shaft. id like to get a
feel for how the gold cuts with tripoli, & the rouge, before using
tools to finish, plus the satisfaction of taking time on a piece. as
for as polishing cloth goes for tripoli & then another with rouge,
what would be the best, or preferred choice for you, & a particular
brand ive heard synthetic chamois is good when using cotton what
should you look for, just simple, tight weaved, unbleached, non dyed
cloth i will probably just buy on the internet, but i’m located in
asia so buying simple local stuff would be easier.

thanks for any help in advance
