DO YOU HAVE BEAUTIFUL ITEMS OF GLASS THAT ARE MARRED BY UNSIGHTLY SCRATCHES AND STAINS.
Well here is the answer.
To see the process on YouTube just click HERE
I have been using these products for over 20 years to remove scratches - stains - and even small chips from vases - drinking glasses - bowls - decanters - etc.
All you need to add is water and patience.
Below I show the removal of scratches from a watch, this is mineral glass just the same as ornamental and utility glass so the process is the same for all. I have 11 videos on YouTube just follow this LINK
This kit is for small projects, if you require a larger kit then please see my other listings.
(please note the contents of this kit will also polish acrylic)
As you can see, the watch above was covered in quite deep scratches. I initially reduced the scratches by hand using silicon carbide, supplied in the kit, this took the longest time (about 20 mins) I then polished the crystal using the powders in the kit in ascending order using the mops and my Dremel 300 (this kit does not contain the polishing mops, for kits with mops please see my other listings), this stage took about 15 mins. Obviously if polishing by hand, using the chamois supplied, this will take longer.
The final result!!!!!
This process can take considerable time, but for vintage glass, where it can be impossible to find replacements, it is well worth the effort.
Other sellers will tell you that all you need is Cerium Oxide to polish away scratches in glass, this is true for very light scuffs and marks but, as those who have tried will know, it will have little effect on deeper scratches.
Most sellers of glass polishing products do not restore glass themselves but are just retailers selling a product on, I use the powders in this kit on a daily basis so I know they work.
As you will see from the examples below I can polish away scratches, limescale, staining and even small chips from all types of glassware using the powders in this kit and you can too.
Some light scratches and stains can be removed in minutes some deeper scratches and stains can take considerably longer.
There is about 3g - 5g of each of the four grades of polishing powder in this kit, course, medium & fine plus polishing. All just require a small amount of water and you are ready to rub away those scratches and stains.
This kit also includes 2 pieces of abrasive and 4 pieces of cloth and instructions. In fact you get all that is in the larger kit, except the tubs to keep it in, only in smaller amounts.
Please note:- this is the kit for hand polishing.
For a small kit with dremel mops see this listing .
As I stated earlier I have been using these products for over 20 years, it took several years of trial and error, listening to old wives tales, reading so called restoration books before I discovered these powders and that was thanks to a publication describing ancient treatments on glass.
With each sale I will give a dedicated email address to assist with your restoration projects and give advise on the many little tools I have made (using items purchased at my local DIY store) to get into those awkward places and to speed up the process using hobby drills etc.
All glass manufacturers use different recipes to produce their glass, as a result some items polish quicker than others but with patience they will all polish
Have you ever had a decanter or other piece of glassware like this ones above, with staining that nothing seems to shift or surface scratches.
The first image is of a decanter with heavy internal staining, I restored this decanter using the powders in this kit and a hobby drill (with patience it can be done by hand) fitted with an attachment that I make myself (I will be listing the attachment soon).
The second image is of a surface scratch on the amethyst bowl sugar bowl, I polished out the scratch using the powders and my hobby drill(with patience it can be done by hand) with the chamois polishing mop attached.
The third image is a small cut jelly glass that someone had used as a small posey vase thus leaving a ring of limescale damage, I polished this out by hand using the chamois included with the powders.
See more examples below.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask.
Good luck with your project.
