I bought a small tumbler, I can fit about 4 molds at a time, working with just walnut shells right now, they buff the surface, remove old goop and dont harm any detail,,
after that I buffed the top surface, this seems to work pretty good,, Im gonna get some other medias to try in the tumbler,

Where do you get "Walnut shells" from? I don't remember ever seeing them in any Hobby or craft shops. Also do you have a pict. of a mold before you buffed the top? I wanted to see what if looked like at that point too.
