    • Use 2000 grit and above fine-grained sandpaper.

    • For this tutorial, I used 2500 grit directly and then 3000 grit for a finer finish.

    • Wet the surface with absorbent cotton or a little water, and then lightly sand it with 2500-grit fine sandpaper.

    • It can be seen that the more serious scratches have been smoothed out, the polished areas have turned white, and the smooth surface has become matte.

    • This step can be performed as many times as necessary.

    • It has now returned to white, but the surface is still matte.

    • If you like this matte style, you can stop

    • To restore a smooth surface, continue sanding with 3000 grit sandpaper in the same way as in the previous step.

    • The finer the sandpaper, the smoother it will be.
