Magic Juice now has an easier to follow step system of numbers for the bottles.
Polishing compounds for embedded object resin blanks, other resin based blanks, and CA or CC finishes too.
Magic Juice is available in 10ml Sample sets, 1oz sets, and 2oz sets. MJ is also available individually in 2oz bottles.

How to use:
Magic Juice (MJ) is best used as a polishing compound for solid resin materials and plastics. MJ may also be used to polish items with a CA (Cyanoacrylate), CC (Craft Coat), or other similar product finish. For best results of hybrid and worthless wood blanks, a sealing finish of CA, CC, or similar is needed before polishing with MJ.
Prepare your turned items by wet sanding up to a recommended 2000 grit, however stopping at 800 grit is acceptable. Using a lathe speed of 2400-3000 rpm, work through the six-bottle MJ set. Start with STEP #1 and work up the numbers, with STEP #6 being last. A pencil eraser sized amount is all that is needed from each bottle. Polish the sanded item with mild pressure for 20-60 seconds. You will notice a change of a mild grit to a smoother feel while polishing. That smoother feel is your indication to move to the next bottle.
MJ is not recommended for use on friction polish finishes or raw unfinished woods. Magic Juice is water based; do not allow it to freeze.
Have been using this for a while to polish pens and handles. Works great on all-resin directly or hybrid pieces that have been finished with CA or Melamine lacquer. Almost out of what I had bought before so ordered more; had to get the 2 ounce bottles because 1 oz is out of stock and didn't want to run out. This is good stuff. Doesn't take long to use and provides a super finish.
I order Magic Juice back on 8/31/23. The order was filled on 9/2/23. I received the shipping number and kept checking and it never was mailed. I finally sent a email on about the 7th asking about the status as it appeared it was never mailed. The order was put in the mail that day but I never received any type of response to my email which I feel is very poor customer service.
Because of this review, I just found this email in my spam filter. Gmail filters get a little overzealous with filters sometimes. I am sorry we missed your email.
As for the delayed shipment, I have no good excuse. We had a few packages that were missed in drop off. I am glad we got your order delivered, althoughnit was late. I apologize for the late delivery.
I will work to do better, but I do make mistakes from time to time.
Thank you for your purchase,
What a great product wish I’d purchased the larger bottles
I Haven't figured the usage out yet. The 1-6 steps don't seem to get the shine others raved about.
Hi Mark, I am sorry to hear you were not getting the shiny gloss you are expecting. Feel free to reach out to us directly and we can help to figure out where we can help. I am not sure if this is your issue, but a key thing to remember with Magic Juice is to avoid friction heat with our product. It is NOT a friction polish and some people do not realize that that heat from friction polishing will cause the finish to dull on resin blanks. Magic Juice is a polishing compound and light touches for buffing will yield the best results.
Bought the kit at the MWPG show and finally had the chance to use it. It is amazing how much better the finish looks compared to my old micro mesh and a final polish method. Have used this on a few pens and most recently on a pinecone cast handle. Results are great. Will not go back to the other method again.
