I've never really sanded clay before, mainly because I never have the time so I just varnish. All my poly pals sand though, so I thought I would see what all the fuss is about.
2 tiger eye cabochons. The one on the right is sanded and then both are glossed. I can really see the difference - the sanded cab has much more depth and lustre to it.
More sanded and glossed beads.
Sanded but not glossed. This gives the beads a real matt quality.
Not sanded, just glossed with a satin glaze. Not as nice!
Sanded and then glazed with tls - what a mess. I need to sand again now. Clearly the tls behaves differently to the liquid Kato.
