How to make bottoms less abrasive?

Recommended Posts

What are your tricks to make unglazed bottoms of stoneware items less abrasive? I don't want them to scratch table or countertop surfaces.

 

Do you polish them with diamond wheels/points or belt sanders? Any other approaches short of attaching felt?

 

 

Thank you.

I sand all of my work. I first sand with a green "stainless steel wool" type thing for kitchen scrubbing.After glaze firing I sand bottoms with course sandpaper. Wear a dust mask.

TJR.

I use silicone carbide sandpaper adhered to a bat on the wheel. Works well for the fines stuff. For bigger stuff a dremel. Always a mask!
