Matte Perspex In A Tumbler?

by Peter
(Melbourne)

Hi, I'm thinking of using recycled perspex pieces but some are scratched already and I would like a uniform matte finish.


Was thinking about buying a tumbler to do it but unable to see if it may/may not work.

Anyone have any suggestions?

Cheers,
Peter

Tumbling Perspex
by: Christine ~how-to-make-jewelry

Tumbling perspex to a matte finish sounds feasible. I've used a simple kids rock tumbler to tumble my sterling silver jewelry and it works well so tumbling perspex should be easy.

You'll need to get some kind of tumbling media that will mattify rather than polish the perspex.

You might want to talk to someone who sells tumblers and media for suggestions. I bought my tumbling media (stainless steel shot for polishing metal to a shine) from Lacy and Co. here in Toronto.

They are very knowledgeable and friendly to talk to.
