MICRO MESH SANDING PAD is THE best way to get a high shine that lasts and looks natural on polymer clay jewelry and accessories. The zen of sanding always gives you a sense of achievement when the shine is revealed on the surface of the clay as in the samples shown.

CREATED from my search for just the right tools to accomplish the task, this five piece set of sanding pads gives you progressively finer grits and surface finish......just like metal jewelers use. In fact this set will work fabulously on metal clay jewelry too - before or after firing! (Just keep a set for both stages of sanding.)

++++++++HOW TO SAND?+++++++++

There are other grits available however I have condensed the number of sanding steps to the five that gives the best and fastest results. For polymer clay set up a sanding station with a tray, water bowl, a towel and a hard block to rest the pad or piece as you sand and experience the sanding zen for yourself!

Sanding is best done by placing a wet sanding pad on a solid raised waterproof surface. (I use a rubber block the size of the pad.) Dip the cured clay piece in water and using back and forth movements all over the surface start with the heaviest grit, 1500. Then use the next size 1800grit sanding in a crosswise direction. Repeat in crosswise directions with each higher grit progressing to the 3600 where you will see a soft shine on the surface. To get a high gloss finish, buff on a buffing wheel or like Julie P does, your blue jeans! Marvelous!

**TIP** You will know when to move to the next grit when your piece glides over the sanding pad with less resistance than you started with. Just be sure you sand the ENTIRE surface because you won't notice that you missed a spot until you are completely finished! But you can start over and give more attention to that spot with less time sanding.

======WHAT'S INCLUDED IN THE KIT?======

One double sided pad of each grit and a laminated reference chart is included in each kit.

Your choice of 3"x4" OR 2"x2" pads

BONUS! A plastic storage box is included! Use it for storage, travel, or creating a sanding station all your own!

AND a pad holder for drying the sanding pads before packing up to go!

**Allow to dry after use. Do not soak in water to use. These will last a long, long time with a little care.

NOTE!!! these pads from the manufacturer have a distinct oily smell. It will dissipate with use and leaving them out to air dry. It doesn't effect the use of the pads, just your nose for a while.

Shipping policies

We ship out your order within 12-24 hours after it is placed in most cases. Usually we are able to get it into the mail by the next day. If there will be a delay of any kind, I will contact you via email with the reason and an estimate of when it will be shipped. We want you to be able to start enjoying your purchase as soon as possible!

Each item is packed with care to ensure against damage. Because we take great care in packing and selecting the best method to ship, we believe that paying extra for insurance is well, just a waste of money. You may ask for insurance if you would like and it will be billed to your order. All packages are shipped both first class or priority mail and most arrive within just a few days. Some take a little longer. Some items are actually cheaper shipping priority mail, and are automatically insured),than first class, so compare rates before committing!

The shipping amount is calculated based on my best guess of the total SHIPPING weight of your purchase, NOT the true weight of the item(s). We use USPS (United States Postal Service) exclusively because they have the best rates for shipping the type of packages we send. By processing your shipping through the USPS you and I will receive a tracking number so we will know where your package is on it’s journey to you!

In addition to the actual USPS cost of shipping, a flat $1.50 handling fee is added to the shipping. This is to cover the cost of packaging, paper, labels, ink, tape…..those necessary things to get the order to you. I do not include this in the price of each item to inflate the items price, but it is added PER PACKAGE. It is an unavoidable cost I ask you to share with me.

Sometimes the calculation and charge on shipping on your selection of multiple items may be way above the actual costs of mailing it. In such cases I will refund amounts that are more than $2 above actual costs (actual ship price + handling fee). This also applies to calculations which come in too low to cover the costs to mail. As shipping rates and the online calculation programs change it sometimes ‘burps’ out a ridiculous amount! You can pay it and trust I will refund the excess, or stop and ask me about it prior to completing your order. I would be happy to manually calculate shipping and set up a reserved listing for you!

INTERNATIONAL SHIPPING

We ship around the world! Lately though the costs have become unreasonable for some items. Therefore be aware that the price calculated for your order is the best we can do. We often ship at a loss because of these changes. You can ask prior to purchase and I can give you an estimate of the costs to ship if you’d like.

Customs and VAT fees in your country are your responsibility and not part of the shipping charge from us.
