For rubber tumble barrels
In addition to using the loose denim pieces in tumble buffing, I
made a liner out of used denim for my Lortone tumbler barrel.
liner consists of a long strip to line the sides and two circle pieces
for top and bottom. Each liner piece is double thick so they remain
this liner set for two reasons.
- The more denim surface there is for the beads to rub against,
the better and faster they get done.
- Some folks have complained their rubber barrels can leave
a discoloration on their polymer clay beads. I've noticed that
with my rubber barrels.
Again, it's only soft fabric and well sanded polymer clay pieces.
No water, rouge or anything else is used. Just put the tumbler lid
on and close it up the standard way. Tumble for 5-8 hours.
