It's not rare that a beautifully beautiful table surface becomes ugly and dull, with moisture stains and other marks. If the surface is treated with cellulose alloy, the shiny but spotted layer can be dulled down and recovers a lot of its freshness. This applies if the damage to the table is superficial. The most important thing to remember when doing this job is to be easy on your hand and work methodically, for a long time. Then you will have a side matte surface without scratches in the paint.
Pumice stone - or the pimble as it is also called - is a very porous lavaberg species. This is used as abrasive material in whole pieces and in powder. When painting a painted surface, use a very fine powdered pumice stone and a soft gel or nylon brush. Then you do not risk scratching the paint. On the other hand, the surface is dulled and surface spots and other damage are "torn" away without the need to slip and paint.
To get a beautifully painted surface, it is important that you work in only one direction, and preferably in the wood Grain. For the brush in circular movements this will appear on the surface that becomes scratchy and shiny. It is most common to perform this work on table tops, which are often subjected to quite severe wear and tear. Stains and marks for glass and copper are many times extra correct because the damage is caused by pure bad luck.
If you are going to mow a round or oval table top - or one with multi-layer finishes - choose a natural working direction and then hold to this one. Even though the "grinding" also crosses the fiber direction, the result will be good. The most important thing is therefore to be consistent in the workflow. It is only the surface you are processing with pumice stone and brush. Bones, threads and undercoats will be matted with fine steel wool - 3/0. However, the approach is the same. Work with the wool in a direction over the wood. Do not push hard and do not rub.
You may want to wrap the table top so that you do not want to lose the whole shiny surface gloss. After finishing with teak oil or other suitable furniture, the surface becomes slightly shiny again. In addition, you soon discover that dust etc does not appear so clearly on the surface that makes it easier to keep clean and beautiful.
Spread a thin layer of fine powdered pumice stone -4/0. Powder out the powder using a teaspoon or salt pot.
Use a soft brush with a brush of nail or nylon and work the surface along the longitudinal direction of the wood.
For the long and even brush. It is very important that you do not "scrub" the surface.
Pattern deposits can be polished.
If the disc has different fields, you can mask some of them and muddle each part separately.
When painting a polished surface, choose the natural working direction and follow this with long, even times.
Do not forget to also work the edges of the surface with the brush. Work constantly with a smooth and light print.
Legs and underside matte with steel wool, 3/0. Also work here for a long time - without rubbing.
Repeat the treatment so that you are completely satisfied with the result. For example, finish with silicone-free polish.
