Cerium Oxide Powder
This is a high grade cerium oxide used for that final polish when tumbling. A good all-purpose polish powder – excellent for polishing glass but also suitable for agate, quartz, obsidian, opal, etc. This is the peach-orange (“pink”) version of the cerium.
How to use this with a polishing kit:
Mix some Cerium oxide powder into water to a form a thin paste like slurry eg. milk-like consistency, in a small spray bottle which can be used to apply to your polishing pad
Clean the glass surface removing all dirt, grease and residue
Apply the polishing compound mixture to the polishing pad or glass surface
Make sure to mark the inside of the glass with the crayon to identify the area you are working on
With the mounted pad in the drill begin working the area required.
Move the pad up and down, left and right in even movements on the work area.
Keep the surface cool and wet to prevent the glass getting too hot. (Very Important!!)
Inspect the work area by wiping off the residue and keep working until the area is satisfactorily polished
On completion wash and store your polishing pad to use again on your next project.
