Tip #1 - Tumbling

tip #1

Here at EtsyMetal we are starting several new series - including a weekly tip or tutorial!

This week's tip is from Delias Thompson. She uses a film canister when tumbling small parts! Instead of digging around in all the stainless steel shot, put a little bit of the shot and polishing compound in the film canister - throw the film canister in the tumbler and let it go! When time is up, all your small pieces are easily found in the film canister. Such a time saver! You can also use an empty prescription bottle or any such container you may have laying around.

Look out to next weeks tip or tutorial!
