A high buffed finish has one big problem. It will show EVERY flaw, scratch, mismatched section, finger nail dent and ALL imperfections. So it's best to carefully 'pre finish' your work. Check it under a good light, set it aside for hours, and then inspect it again. You can save a lot of work by finding and correcting imperfections before you ever bake. Once baked you can back-fill small gaps in Premo pieces. This pin was buffed, cussed, back-filled, baked and then repeated 3 times.
