Hard to find texture tools for silver clay projects

Finishing Supplies
Brilliant polishing cloth
Brilliant polishing cloth      Qty:      $2.00     

While fine silver isn't supposed to tarnish it does mellow a bit in color and loose some of its luster. Bring that shine back with a Brilliant polishing cloth.

Sanding stick
Sanding stick      Qty:      $1.25     

Sanding with a sanding stick is more efficient and more effective than holding a scrap of sandpaper in your fingers. Comes with fine sand paper already attached.
 
Comes with detailed instructions on how to add more sandpaper: a real tip from the jeweler's bench. Gives you the flexibility of using any sandpaper you like, including locally available ones from your hardware store.

Sanding Tools
Sanding Tools      Qty:      $2.00 set of 1 pink, 1 black.     

These pink and black salon boards are terrific for finishing your pieces. The pink ones can be used to refine edges of "leather hard" or "bone dry" PMC. The black ones are quite coarse and can sometimes even take off very thin excess from fired PMC.

Agate Burnisher
Agate Burnisher      Qty:      $15.00     

NEW! This is the preferred burnisher for applying keum-boo gold foil; the foil may stick to a steel burnisher. Agate burnishers can also be used to polish fired PMC, they bring up a better shine, with less scratching, than steel burnishers.

Wire end rounder
Wire end rounder
       Qty:        $6.00     

If you make your own ear wires, but don't have a flexible shaft machine, how do you smooth out the end of ear wire so it can be worn comfortably? This clever tool has a cupped end that files off the rough edges quickly and easily. Follow that up with light sanding, and your earrings are ready to wear!
