Shiny Beads

When I was teaching polymer clay, I would often get asked how I got my beads shiny.

There are several ways to get shiny beads, but my preferred method is sanding and buffing. I generally use from 800 to 2000 grit and then use my dremel to buff. It's tedious, but I love the results. I have purchased a bench grinder and buffing wheel, but have yet to find a place to set it up...

I found a video on You Tube by "MrsWright75" that does a pretty good job of explaining the sanding and buffing process. Hope this is helpful!
