This is a set of 3 sanding pads, consisting of 1 of each of the individual sanding pads: 1 x 800, 1 x 1000 and 1 x 1500. By buying them in this pack you can save some pennies.
These sponge backed sanding pads are excellent to use with your metal clay. They are soft and flexible so wraps smoothly around your piece. I love these, couldn't be without them! Use them dry on the clay, or wet on the fired metal for a beautiful polish. Rinse after use and they'll last a long time. I usually cut them up in thin strips which are easier to work with. Each pad is 140x115x6mm.
The tech bit:
Abrasive Grit - Aluminium oxide
Binding - Flexible grit binding
Foam - EVA (Ethyl vinyl acetate), PU (Polyurethane)
I am new to silver clay and only used polishing papers after I fired my piece. I wasn't totally happy with the finish so I thought I'd give these a go. They do exactly what it says on the tin, they are great for using on dry clay but brilliant for fired pieces, they really do give the mirror shine I was looking for. I cut them into small pieces and have a wet bag and dry bag.
Easy to use as they can be cut to fit the hard to reach places. Last for ages.
I found this sanding pads much easier to use than using files.
