How to use polishing compound
Having a polished and smooth surface is essential everywhere in carving, both tools and your projects. You probably know how important wood polishing is prior to applying finish on the carving – you always smoothen out the carved surface with sandpaper to make sure the finish lays evenly and your carving is nice and smooth.
That’s how it is with carving tools as well – the smooth and polished cutting edge turns to a great quality whittled piece in the very end. So don’t forget to strop your tools responsibly and regularly to not make it harder on yourself by any means.
Imagine that polishing compound is a piece of crayon or chalk you used to draw with. Cover the surface of the stropping tool you’re using – paddle, strop, wheel or any other surface you’re practicing with to sharpen tools – with a layer of compound as if you’re drawing on it with a green crayon. When the surface is evenly covered, you can grab the tools you wish to work on this day and sharpen them and smoothen out with it.
