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
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.
