when I started, my local supplier, who is pretty knowledgeable,
told me to use the treated muslin buff with tripoli and then move
to the unstitched cotton for rouge. works pretty good for gold.
don't know what the thing's treated with, I guess something that
makes it a little stiffer so you can press a little harder. for
silver I'm going to start using Zam as an intermediate step
before rouge --- hey out there --- do i use the Zam on a treated
muslin or on cotton???
