How does the Just Jade Experience work ???
At the Just Jade Experience you get to be creative by first putting your ideas on paper having hands on involvement designing your own special design. Once your design has been arranged, Gordon will do the difficult carving process for you carefully carving your ideas into stone of your choice. This can take anything from 20 minutes to 1 - 2 hours depending on Complexity of your Design. When the Master Carver has finished your design, then you will be shown how to finish your roughed out design. This process will take 3 to 6 hours or longer depending on complexity of your design. The carving is firstly worked with a silicon carbide rub stone until all tooling marks are removed. Then you are guided through a polishing process of sandpaper's starting from 150, 240, 360, 600, 1200, and 2000 finishing paper. Eventually your creation is ready for the final polishing with Magic Powder polishing abrasive which will make your jade shine and glisten. Then Gordon will rope up and perform the special handing over ownership ceremony. Finally now you own a specially designed jade treasure that you have put a lot of your spirit, feelings and work into.
