Fixing a too glossy finish

Fixing a too glossy finish

Hi Everyone,
   I have had great results toning down a too glossy finish on fimo
jewelry by gently rubbing with fine pumice stone. Much better than going
over the piece with matte glaze which can look cloudy and thick. Hardware
stores have the pumice (it's a powder). I dampen a soft cloth, old terry
cloth is good, pick up some pumice on the cloth and rub gently in a
circular motion. Let it dry and the powder brushes off easily then a quick
wipe with a damp cloth and you're done. It's best to take it slow and
check-you can always rub some more.
hope this helps someone,
Jody
