Default Pen Finishes

I'm new to pen turning and have a lot to learn. The one question I have is when I finish my pen I sand it to 600 and use EEE and than the CA and I last use Novus should that work for a nice finish that will last

THANKS for all your help

It prob won't help you much to use wax under ca.

You will likely need more than just novus after the ca unless your finish is darn smooth.

I can't imagine it working - or at least lasting - the CA won't penetrate the wax - EEE. I would sand, CA, Sand, MM, polish - in that order

Since you are new to turning, do yourself a favor and get yourself some pens plus and skip the ca to start. I'm moving away from ca but it still have a venerable and valuable place.

There are good articles in the library on CA finishes. What you are doing will not work well.
