How-To

Polishing Oregon Picture Rock

After cutting, sand on the 220 grit sander, then move to the 600 grit sander. Polish with cerium oxide. Use no water to wet the sheet at first polish. Spray the wheel with a diluted solution of cerium oxide, and polish lightly without pressure until you have worked it dry. Then wet the wheel again and work until the stone becomes dry again. Final polish is brought out by spraying the wheel with cerium oxide and working, keeping wet about two minutes. Wash and dry off your cab or picture. This will produce a beautiful finish.
