Black Linen Micarta looks.....grey?

Recommended Posts

So in shaping and finishing one of my handles, the micarta comes out more of a greyish color. I haven't 'polished' it yet. Does it really need a polish to be as black as it is supposed to be? Maybe I am shaping/finishing on the wrong side of the slab?

the finer you go, the darker it will get. Some people prefer it rougher because it adds grip, but it doesn't look as pretty (not that micarta is very pretty compared to wood anyway :P )
