Silicon Carbide 80-Grit Jar

This one-pound jar of graded Silicon Carbide grit is perfect for hand-working your glass surface so that it's just matte enough to hold paints applied with a brush or palette knife. It also captures pencil lines well. The 80-grit surface permits smoother lines and edges to be drawn or painted, as compared with the 36-grit. However, it doesn't hold chalks very well. Be sure to wear a protective mask when working with this or any powder. It's not a toxic material, but still, you don't want to breathe it into your lungs.
