Resin Sanding

 I make a lot of samples.  Several end up in the "wait bucket" because they need edges sanded or corrected. They can wait in that bucket months. I don't enjoy sanding.
 Then I found this FANTASTIC battery operated manicure set!  It is perfect for sanding resin objects
I used the attachment shown to get into all the curvy edges to make this molded sample look professionally finished.  Imagine, a sander for $2 at my local dollar store! 

Remember.  It is not a good idea to breath in resin dust. 
So when you sand, do so with a mask on, or in a well ventilated area.

love love love this! I'm not sure what's proper but I actually currently use a metal nail file with a plastic handle. So this makes a lot of sense especially for consistency! thanks for the great idea!
