I use these sanding pads https://www.penblanks.ca/Micro-Mesh-Cushioned-Pads/ After CA, I go right to 12000 with these pads (wet) then use Hut Plastic Polish which I got at the same place. I put the CA on with a rag and then use the spray activator. Truth be told, I find CA a pain. I don’t usually use it with wood, I prefer and enjoy finishing wood handles and bowls off of the lathe. I used to make pens and did use CA for those.
