For smoothing, pushing and polishing metal surfaces. A burnishing tool has a cylindrical stem, ending in a smooth curve that comes to a point. Use it to smooth out the marks made by the scraper, or other light drypoint marks. Begin by putting a small amount of oil on the spot you want to smooth. Use the bottom of the curve to burnish. Press firmly down, with your finger, in the crook of the tool, and make tight, circular or back-and-forth motions.
