Directions: Make Your Own Native American Catlinite Pipe
You are now ready to sand your pipe.
You will probably want to start with 100 grit sandpaper, cut it into app. 2" x
2" squares, so you can get a good hold on it, and go over the entire pipe good
with it. After you're finished with the 100 grit, move on to 150 grit sandpaper
and again go over the entire pipe. You can finish the dry sanding with 220 grit
You then want to get a small pan of water, (or work on the pipe in the sink)
making the pipe and a small piece of 400 grit wet-n-dry sandpaper nice and wet.
You can dip the pipe and the paper in the water occasionally so everything
stays nice and wet while you are sanding over the entire pipe again. The higher
the grit that you decide to use on catlinite, the smoother the polish will be. Occasionally we will work our way all the way to 1500 grit wet-n-dry paper. I
believe it is available in 400 grit, 600 grit, 800 grit, 1000 grit and 1500
Once you are finished with this, proceed to "Step 9".
