Since Iv'e gotten a little better with sharp tools I finish up with a 1/2" oval skew. For sanding acrylics I start wet sanding at 600 grit then Micro Mesh to 12000 grit. Once I start on the Micro Mesh the sanding goes very quick. Not having to use the lower grits has saved me from buying those as often. I just have to resupply the 600 roll. Micro Mesh will last a long time if used for wet sanding. Inlace is a little more brittle than some of the other acrylics & sharp tools & a lighter touch are needed to keep from pitting. You can repair any deep pitting by filling with CA glue. When finished I use the Barry Gross buffing setup for a quick buff.
Just because you can, doesn't always mean you should!
