How To Use Diamond Hand Polishing Pads
So-called because they comfortably fit in your hand, these flexible diamond hand pads are best used wet, but can also be used dry.
Diamond polishing pads work well on curved edges or dome shapes due to their flexibility.

- Remove batt wash/kiln wash from glass and ceramic
- Smooth, sand and round off sharp edges from cut glass

"I bought the diamond hand pads and I will never regret it. The glaze over ran the vase I made and the base was covered in excess glaze and needed removing. The hand pads worked; my vase is intact and now has been sold" - Raymond Gilbert-Griffiths

"Ever tried to get rid of the ridiculously sharp edge you make when you cut a sheet of glass? What you need to do is to sand it smooth and round off the sharp edges. By far the best tool for this job is a diamond sanding pad from Eternal Tools. They have various grades so that you can quickly get to as smooth a finish as you need" - Rob Page.
