I use, in order:
220, 320, 400, 600, 1000, 1200, 1500, 2000, And sometimes 2500
Which I got from TAP Plastics…Although I snag high grit sand
paper from wherever I see it.
Go in opposite directions with each change in grit. Do Not Cheat (or
you will end up going backwards anyway).
This gives a sort of deep shine with just rouge, and I do Fablustre
afterwards for a really high shine. I don’t know how to explain
"deep shine" exactly. It is probably my imagination but the shine
looks… um, uh… sort of “soft” and “deep.” This is always a
temporary condition with silver anyway… you breathe on it and it
If the piece has lots of small spaces, I sand to 600 then tumble
with clean steel shot for a lovely shine.
