Here you go. I would recommend using medium and trying it out on a scrap piece. Add enough drops to sort of lubricate the foam wiper and build up a little pool on the wiper/blank interface, as the blank rotates slowly. It will only take 3 or 4 coats. let the CA dry well between applications. Accelerator works, but since the CA coating is much thicker, just be careful when spraying it on. It can cause dimpling ( or sort of an orange peel look) of the surface.

Great work Eric

I didn't realise the cholla got that large, I have only ever bought the smaller ones. I intend to give some big banksia slices a try on the bangles I got off you today
