What seems like eons ago there was talk of Micron "sanding" paper. I know it was by 3M. Well I recently ordered some from a different company. I haven't gotten to use it on clay yet but being the way I am I had to test it on something ... so I grabbed the nearest thing to me; my cuticle nippers. I wasn't trying to sharpen them or anything but rather wanted to test if they really would polish things to a shine .... I only tested the highest two 'grits' and they brought my nippers to a like new shine!

I can't wait to get to use them on clay! Expensive buggers but Chris (forgive me I don't have the last name handy) who recommended me said they last forever!

Wow! That looked like a glass bead it was so shiny. Can you cut them into smaller pieces? I got sanding paper from the local auto body shop but it doesn't last very long at all...Lucky I don't do really glossy looking beads but it would still be nice to have some grit that lasts.

Yes the strips are only 3x6 (if memory serves me correctly) and fabric backed so I am quite sure they can be cut.
I understand your frustration with regular wet/dry sandpaper not lasting. It frustrates me. I will still have to use it for imperfections but I haven't even used it on clay yet and I am in love with this new product. To further test it I took an old pair of glasses and rubbed the lenses with the two highest grits..... NO scratches! (I had read that you can use these sheets to remove scratches from your glasses. I have an old pair of sunglasses I am going to try it on. will let you know.)

Chris (the one who did that shiny bead) said that these cloths last "forever" so to me that is a great investment!
