Suggestions for Sandcarving Stainless-Steel Tumblers

If you haven't sandcarved metal, you are missing out on personalizing popular products like stainless-steel tumblers. But before you get started, here's something to remember...

When sandcarving metal, it’s important to know that you will not obtain depth with metal surfaces unlike other substrates like glass or crystal. When sandcarving stainless-steel tumblers, you will only remove the coated surface or polish of the metal surface.

The best settings for sandcarving this type of item is using a silicon carbide 150 grit at 35 psi.
