Crystal Surface

posted in: News

Inside a glass jar throw a couple of handfuls of gum shellac in flakes and enough 95grados alcohol to cover them. This way you have a fairly strong solution that you’ll subsequently diluted. Let dilute 24 hours. Crankpin do a ball with sheep’s wool and place it in the center of a piece of white linen or cotton fabric. Do not use nylon. Honed Abres crankpin throw a little rubber lacquer on the wool, adding a little alcohol, and after kneading it pliegas it. You rub the surface in straight lines with her. Alcohol of gum shellac causes the henchimiento of fibers, highlighting their burrs you shalt with the honed.

You use for apomazar sandpapers of different grains, ending with the world’s finest. Alternatively, you burnish the wood with very fine steel wool. The issue is that the surface is very soft to the touch. Stuffed at this point should recommend to sprinkle the surface with pumice stone, but I will not do, because it is very complicated for a novice and is dispensable. Simply loads the crankpin with a good drizzle of rubber lacquer concentrated and after kneading it so that it spread across the canvas, draw straight lines on the surface, as if you write, from left to right and from top down.

You repeat this operation for several minutes until you see how is forming a soft rubber film lacquer. Let stand a few hours. Recharge raisins on the surface steel wool or fine sandpaper to remove possible burrs after filling. Loads the crankpin with rubber lacquer and add a drizzle of alcohol to lower its concentration and more manageable. You have to draw zero bound on the surface, as if you write 00000 without lifting the crankpin and crankpin at any point, let stop because you burn up the varnish. You do this until you see a nice layer of varnish or varnish when smoking. Varnish smokes when passing the wrist form a sort of mist on the surface that quickly disappears. Don’t worry if your varnish not smokes, it is enough with a nice result, without being totally lacquered and saturated rubber lacquer. With practice it is possible to see smoke varnish. As the surface will covering, you have to go by more and more concentration of the rubber lacquer, to make it more manageable and crankpin does not catch on the surface. So you won’t have to use petroleum jelly, which is very annoying to remove. Stretched now takest streaks, marks on the varnish and redistribuyes in equal measure the length and width of the surface. Do not recharge the crankpin with more rubber lacquer. Just add alcohol to the crankpin, so that little by little the crankpin are will help to clean varnish. You draw straight horizontal and then vertical lines, stretching the rubber lacquer with force, adding only alcohol, until the crankpin already have varnish he shellac. This will take you quite some time. At this point, you are not adding alcohol to the crankpin, still drawing straight lines for the cloth and wool to dry completely. Lacquering has finished when the crankpin is dry and clean and slides gently by the Crystal surface. If you consider that the pores are still very open and visible, you can extend a little wax past 24 hours. Good job!
