Re: Giving rocks a wet look

Hello DJ,

Doesn't sound like you are up to the task of conventional lapidary processes to polish your material, so you might want to consider using "cheater polish", which is painting your material with a spray can of gloss polyurethane or a similar paint.

The polyurethane will serve to fill minute scratches in the rock and provide the wet look you're after. It won't harm the rock or interfere with the application of a "real" polish via lapidary processes at a later date if you ever get around to that.
