Our handmade tape burnisher from exotic woods,a lot of them are woods reclaimed from salvage,we hope would be the only burnishing tool you would ever want to use once you try it. Created by Artists for artists, this tool will help to smooth out all the bubbles and creped edges on tape, vinyl, frisket inlay designs, anything that needs to be burnished down, and help you prevent bleeds of color on to something else. Comfortable to hold in the palm of your hand. Each burnisher is made from a variety of different types of woods individually by hand . These burnishers are as practical as they are pretty. Select your favorite woods, they all work the same. Each burnisher is about 4 ⅝’ long with a tapered design. The large end is about 1” and the smaller end ¾” and about ⅛” thick. The burnishers are designed with a flat burnish end as well as a curved side for when you need a more delicate touch. There is also a soft pointed edge for pushing into tight corners especially when taping off trim or mouldings.
Some of the uses for this burnisher are to burnish tape on trim and moldings for painting or faux finishes on walls, securing tape and design vinyls for inlay work, smoothing out bubbles when applying decals, even as a squeegee for pressing out glue.
A Special Thank You to Kathy Carroll for allowing us the opportunity to offer these burnishers to you.

First coat – Apply first coat in the same fashion you would apply a standard joint compound: in a smooth even fashion leaving a wet edge to avoid lap marks. While the plaster is still moist, it is recommended to use a wet sponge or a plastic float to create a more uniform design. Allow at least 12 hours to dry.
Second coat – If required to smooth, lightly sand first coat with 180-320 grit sandpaper before proceeding. Apply second coat in the same manner as first coat. While Firenze ™ is still moist, it is recommended to use a wet sponge or a plastic float to create a more uniform design. Avoid formation of dark trowel marks.
