I’m planning a project that will have a strip of aluminum running down the middle, either 1/8” or 1/4” wide and I’m trying to figure out the finishing phase so that i can try it out on a test piece I’m doing.
When I’ve worked with brass in the past, the brass ends up looking great by just using progressively finer grits of sandpaper. I’m wondering if it’s the same with Aluminum?
Also, will BLO have any negative affect on the aluminum strip? I’m planning on using BLO before the final finish (wipe on poly or something similar, still undecided).
If anyone has worked with aluminum before, i’d love to learn from your exp.
