What can I use to polish epoxy resin?
Use a cotton buff and polishing compound appropriate for resins (I use Fabulustre). Let the buff spin, use it to pick up compound, then press onto the resin. You can use a Dremel tool or flex shaft for small projects like charms, but a large buff makes quick work of polishing something larger like a bracelet.
What is the best polish for epoxy resin?
TOPFINISH 2 is a fine finish polishing compound developed specifically for tough plastics like epoxy resin. The super fine nano-particle formulation can be used to achieve even higher levels of gloss on polished epoxy resin surfaces or be used to restore gloss to scratched or well-used surfaces.

First, apply some of the colorless polishing paste to the cotton or linen cloth and then moisten it slightly with water. Then rub the cloth in slow, circular movements with a little pressure over your work. It may take some time before the surface has the desired shine. So you have to be patient.
Can I use toothpaste to polish resin?
Using the sponge pad of your polish machine, polish the epoxy with the toothpaste. Make sure that you don’t apply too much pressure or the epoxy might burn. Let the pad gently touch the epoxy while spinning. When you run out of toothpaste, apply it again and spray it with some water!
How do I fix cloudy resin?
Surface resin cloudiness
- Recoat with a layer of doming resin. Use the resin like a glaze. Brush it over the surface of your cloudy resin and allow it to cure.
- Apply a couple of light layers of resin gloss sealer spray. This method is the best choice for resin charms that have a lot of grooves and irregular surfaces.
How do you stop air bubbles in resin?
A small amount of baby powder can work to reduce bubbles in resin. If you are using colored resin, you can even choose a powder that matches the color of the resin you are using. Use a delicate paintbrush to dust in the powder, then tap out any extra before pouring.
How do you polish epoxy resin after sanding?
Wet sand the resin with 400 grit sandpaper to remove any scratches. Spray some water on your resin piece or dip it in water to get it wet before smoothing it out with the sandpaper. Sand the entire surface of the resin 2-3 times before moving on to the next step.
Can you spot fix epoxy?
An uneven hardening of your epoxy resin can lead to dull, or even tacky spots. To fix an uneven epoxy finish, wait until the epoxy has dried thoroughly, and then sand it lightly with fine-grained wet sandpaper. You can then apply a covering coat of epoxy resin.
