Polishing

I have been so busy polishing this week that I forgot to blog! I do all my polishing by hand and it can be quite therapeutic. The mind can wander a little while the hands are busy. Whilst polishing I tend to daydream about glistening golden microscopes and my next projects. Today I sanded and polished with various grades of pumice. I have one more extra  fine polish to do before I start lacquering this piece, and tomorrow evening I have another piece to finish which just needs heating and reassembling.

The excitement mounts. I hope I can get it all done, I have to do some gardening to do as well. The penstemon need urgent  attention.

About Spock's Sister

I have a collection of vintage microscopes with a variety of interesting condensers and functions. I also sensitively restore old, damaged antique brass microscopes.
