I did some sanding and polishing, and this is the result!

Thanks Whystler! I got some 2000 grit sandpaper to really shine it up this time!

Blimey Charley, that looks good. Did you wet sand it?

No, but I used a dremel with my own custom sanding wheels. I just cut a strip of sandpaper and wrapped it around the sanding mandrel, works pretty well as long as I tape the sandpaper well. Surprised

Now that's a great idea. I have a dremel but the disc I use (no idea what it is, but it's hard and grey) takes forever to get a nice shine.

Wow! It looks even more beautiful now that you smoothed it out.

If you find that you will be buffing out a lot of pieces, you may want to get a machine specifically for that. You can often find them as cheap as $50. They have big spinning wheels and and you can have a different grit on each wheel so you can work to your finest grit.
