How to Tumble Rocks
These pictures are showing how to change the grit during the tumbling process. I am in the third week so I am changing from step 3 to 4 in these pictures. If you are just starting then skip to step 4, and just start with washing your rocks and container.
"Lets get readyyy to tuuuumble..." you have to shout that out really loud and then break a metal chair over someones head. Then you are ready to start!
|Step ONE: unplug your tumbler|
|Step TWO: go outside and open up the container of rocks. It is messy and you DO NOT want that gray stuff going down your drains, so just pour it out somewhere in your backyard.|
|Step THREE: use a wire basket or bucket to clean the rocks thouroughly before you bring them inside.|
|Step FIVE: get whatever grit or polish you need according to the directions specific to your tumbler size, or your own preference.|
|Step SIX: put the rocks back in the container|
|Step SEVEN: add the grit or polish and then add water just to the level of the rocks|
|Step NINE: Plug that baby back in!|
and in no time at all your rocks will look awesome
