This blog post has been on the to-do list for a few months now and I just have not had a chance to do it. Fortunately, my favorite you tuber, Barnacules Nerdgasm, went through the same sequence of steps that I did and ended up with the same conclusion: rock tumbler + stainless steel shot + water + detergent = awesome bronzefill polishing method. The only changes I'd advise to his process are to use distilled water instead of tap water and to consider buying a burnishing detergent instead of plain dish detergent. If you want to try it yourself, make sure to use his affiliate links. Those referrals are a big part of how full time youtubers support themselves and you know you want to see more of his awesome videos. He also has a referral link to printed solid. If you it, let me know so I can make sure to get him credit for the sale! [youtube height="HEIGHT" width="WIDTH"]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nDoYO22103Q&list=UU1MwJy1R0nGQkXxRD9p-zTQ[/youtube]
