Honing Marble Trim

I need to take the shine off some marble pencils. If I can degloss carrara pencils, they'll work well with the calacatta honed marble I'm installing.

I tried lemon juice, but it's not enough. Any suggestions on a stronger acid to try, or which sandpaper will work. I'm willing to hand sand, instead of using the elec. polisher, but I have one. Any tips appreciated. Thanks.

Re: Honing Marble Trim

Look for honing pads or powders.

I have Stadea ond Damo brand pads. They're faster than powder.

Some 320 paper and water works well.
