Default Shaving Brush

I did a 4 color pour for a change and went with a little lighter look. I really like how it turned out but even though I cast under pressure I still got a tiny pinhole. It happens once in a great while. I'm still happy with it, and you probably won't be able to see the hole even if you enlarge the pics, it's barely big enough to get a needle into. As usual, I used Silmar 41 & mica powders : pearl silver or pearl white (they look the same & the packages weren't labeled), red, blue, & yellow. Wetsanded to 400 then the first 3 MM pads followed by my homemade abrasive paste then Novus 3 & 2. Using the abrasive paste saves a chunk of time vs sanding with all the MM pads and IMO the end result is better.
