Just so you know, the paste you made is fine for a CA finish or acrylics. I did the same thing after watching Daniel's original version. I ordered tripoli from Amazon without knowing it was the dark stuff...

I use the paste after sanding to 2400 MM (the third pad) then polish with Novus 3 & 2. It's a real time saver vs using all the MM pads and I can't see a difference under 10x magnification. I have pumice powder and will make a paste to see if I can eliminate MM altogether.

Yes, but Hampshire Sheen has both pumice and rottenstone, and pumice is also one of the steps used in a hand rubbed lacquer finish which I've done many times. I figure if it cleans up sanding from 400 grit, or hopefully even 320, then I can eliminate all the MM pads. On my first batch I'll use half what I use for my tripoli paste then I'll test it and adjust from there. I'll post results with pics after some trial runs.

I have no idea why I typed Hampshire Sheen in my previous post. Yorkshire Grit is the abrasive paste that has pumice and tripoli.
