The authentic direct POV of hand burnishing. A method by which one compresses, dries, polishes at once. An interaction of hands and science. Using a trained, small, steel trowel of the highest standard. This can be seen instantaneously. Using light, direct or indirect. One can see where she needs to be hit and hit again, and again until polished. By burnishing in such a way. The strong compression allows all previously applied layers to telegraph through. Giving a deep, translucent , marble look. Due to the fact, it is marble and limestone... basically. An artisan works with nature to accomplish what you see. Many applicators have chosen to use sandpaper and machines to accomplish all, but a shine. Lacking the intense depth of layering marble naturally has( just an opinion of mine) That way of working is a “look” and can be attractive to many. Considering the hardcore labor involved of hand burnishing. I’ve not seen the depth of the material with that process, personally. Therefore my efforts are painstaking. Honoring the originality from a historical standpoint and personal love of hands to wall. I’ve been asked so many times. “How do you get it to look that way” so... there it is.
