Can acrylic be polished? Acrylic is often chosen because of its glass like transparency that can be polished to a high shine – particularly for items that will be on display and for applications where edges are visible.
How do you get acrylic paint to shine? All you need to do is mix the gloss medium into the paint on the palette, and then paint as normal. The paint should dry to a glossy finish. To achieve even more gloss, apply a high gloss varnish once the painting is finished and the paint is dry.
Can you cut and polish acrylic paint? Acrylic Lacquer requires cutting and polishing to bring out high gloss levels. Using plenty of water, lightly sand the painted surface using P1500-2000-2500 grit Wet Sandpaper on a flexible soft sanding block. Care needs to be taken to avoid edges and removing too much paint.
