There are plenty of threads posted on this subject on this site. Do a search on tumbling iron pontils and a number of options are discussed. Good luck.Hi,
I used to tumble my own and friends bottles, however I haven't tumbled any bottles for over ten years.
I have had some major surgeries and illnesses between the last time I tumbled and my memory isn't so good anymore. Could'nt remember what to do about protecting the iron when tumbling.
Remember using a rubber ball, but wasn't happy with the results. Think I remember using nail polish and think it did work. Someone else told me that they used varnish and then used some type of varnish remover.
I need to know what to use and how to then safely remove the protective material without removing the iron.
