Above are six different brands of clay. All were wet sanded with two grades of fairly fine MicroMesh, 2400 and 3600, then buffed gently with a cotton buffing wheel on an electric buffer.
I haven’t found it necessary to go through all the grades of MicroMesh, so maybe this is the lazy person’s method of getting a glass-like finish.
If I didn’t know which was which, I’m not sure I’d be able to pick out Soufflé. I was surprised by how shiny it became when sanded and buffed. If I look very closely and compare it with the others, I can see a teeny, tiny pattern of microscopic dents. This is where the microbeads in Soufflé fell out.
To dispel the mystery, left to right are: Cernit Number One, Fimo Pro, Soufflé, Pardo, Premo and Kato.
