Pumice Powder is used mainly as an abrasive for cutting down French Polish.
During French polishing the fine pumice powder can also be used as a very mild abrasive to help diminish surface flaws in freshly applied shellac coats.
Using the pumice powder is actually a shellac REPAIR tool that can be used sparingly to help even out or smooth the rough shellac surface over damaged or repaired areas.
While padding the repaired area normally with shellac, sprinkle a minute amount of pumice over the damaged area and continue padding. You will feel a slight abrasive action of the pad immediately - actually, the pad is grinding the surface slightly AND laying down a new fine shellac layer at the same time.
Please note this technique is not precise. Observe the effect of padding with the pumice and adjust the amount of pumice used to the amount of levelling action that is needed. The severity of the flaw or damage to the finish surface will determine how well this shellac finish may be blended back flat and smooth with this method.
Repeated cycles of sanding the area and more padding, will bring any flawed finish surface back to a new perfectly flat condition.
The pumice powder can be sprinkled on the surface, or it can be delivered to the surface with a cotton pounce bag. Some pumice powder is wrapped tightly in a small cotton cloth - just tapping this cotton "ball" on the polished surface will release a small amount of powder through the cotton weave to the polished surface.
