Hi I'm Jason with today we're going to learn about rock polishing. We're going to polish a rock for a charm for a necklace. What we'll need is a Dremel, a drill bit, a cutting bit, two sanding bits, well three sanding bits ones actually a polishing bit. And a cloth bit. And to pick out your rock, just find something out in the yard anywhere. Take a hammer and break open a piece. As you can see this is a really nice rock, this is some sort of marble. So break off a piece, the smaller the better. We can start polishing it and cutting it, shaping it from there. Take the, just take a hammer and just chip off a piece of the rock. If it's colorful inside and you like it, keep it. If not throw it away. And start over. Like the back side of this one is all brown, gray inside so, we're going to use this.
