acid removal of heavy scratching on u. glass.

<< < (2/4) > >>

johnphilip:
A well known restorer once told me if the scratches were very deep you may just end up with polished scratches . hmmmmm  :-\

Frank:
Polished scratches are ok. You can then call it cut glass  8)

Nemmie:
Thanks for the micro mesh tip. Just used it on a vase that has been bugging me for years.

Worked like a charm and only took half an hour of rubbing with various grades.

Frank:
Micro-mesh themselves say

but this might be good enough for glassware as Nemmie attests.
I guess you could you use it in water for U glass, preventing airborne particles.

Nemmie:
The vase had a ring well more like a double ring or several rings from water sitting in it.

Nothing else I have tried over the years had made any difference so I am very happy. I suppose fogging would be a different matter.

I wish I had taken a before pic because the transformation is really impressive.
