I have a specific polishing question regarding the ability to mask
off aspects of my designs so that they are not polished when using a
buffing wheel and polishing stick.
I create surface carved titanium rings, and often anodize colors
into the recesses of the carvings. I would like to find a compound
similar to a putty that can be applied to the ring surface to fill in
the carving and prevent the polishing compund from stripping off the
anodized finish. And then it must be able to be fairly easily
removed from the carving during clean up.
I am certain that such a thing exists, but do not know what to call
it, or its trade name. I am also looking for a convenient source for
its purchase (in the U.S.).
Thank you for all of your help,
