Step Six: Final Removal And Polish

When nearly all of the extra white has been removed from the surface it is time to switch to a dry soft cotton cloth. This is used to buff off the last of the white and to clean the area.

Buff off the final white haze

A silicon treated rag can then be wiped over the lettering gently and this will in theory protect the metal. It is possible to lightly oil the area but in some cases the oil can contaminate the white lettering and change its color a little bit. This does not happen every time... we believe it may have something to do with the type of oil used.
