Sandpaper pads or blocks work really well for sanding polymer clay and other craft projects. They are easy to hold… have some give to them, which means that they sand rounded surfaces nicely without leaving flat spots… and they last longer than if you were to just use sandpaper by itself.
The problem is that the pads or blocks can be quite expensive, and they aren’t always available in the grit that you want.
In this video, I will show you how you can easily (and cheaply) create your own custom sanding pads in any size, grit or type of abrasive that you need.
