Do you not have pass work that you can submit?
A lot of the guys just go out back and work on some sample granite and take some nice images and call it a day.

Have a good one. Mark

It just has to display your ability to make a repair.

nope, we pick the best to take the free pass. We know for a fact no matter how good you are, we can improve your skill.
As far as I know, we are the only group that has the conference to offer a free pass to people that is already in the trade. It is very easy to impress a new comer, but when you get another pro to improve his/her skills. That is the mark of a real instructor.

This course sounds like the cat's A$$! Like I mentioned before, I help a buddy in a fab shop and now I'm getting more & more calls for polishing. Counters and floors.
 The thing is, my main thing has been mostly cutting slabs and installs. Not much polishing and seam work. In the pics of the green counter posted in an earlier post, I knew right away it was one of my buddy's installs because of the way the seam was done. He always just mix the epoxy and adds the colour to it. No polishing or anything afterwards so they all look like this. Wide and dull.
 I like how you mentioned Joh of layering the colours. That is a great idea!!!!!!
Apply the different colours in the seam the same as the marble/granite. Let set up and polish. This will help the seam to blend in more. I guess for that counter I could mix some light and dark greens and layer them or apply light in the light areas and dark in the darer areas.
 How long before polishing the seam?
 I'm gonna practise this technique in the shop this week. (Can't tomorrow. My Granddaughter is being born)Clap
 It will most likely be with granite as we don't do hardly any marble any more as granite is the main choice.

I like to play collect the dots, place the light in the light areas and the dark in the dark areas. for the top that you posted, I would mix around six shades of green and a shadow grey for the last step. It takes me 1 hour to set and polish a seam, but I can do it with out diamonds. If you wish I can make a short video that shows you how to do this in very little time.

Congrats on the new born.

no need for the tin oxide, if needed just go up in the diamonds to get a better polish. This is a very easy job. the only way you can mess this up, is if you are careless and leave waves in the stone.

I was hoping to stay away from the powders if possible. I figure I'd start with 100 and go up to 3000. Should I try to get all the scratch (knife cuts) out with the 100 before proceeding with the next grit?

You must remove all the knife marks before you start to hone are polish.
I would start off at the 50 just to speed it up.
