PAPER & CRAFTY chat topics:

BURNISH:
The term burnish has been around for centuries and commonly described a technique by potters using the back of a spoon to polish raw clay, before firing in the kiln.

Lately, a phrase in paper crafting for creating a firm crease with a 'folder' tool is being called 'burnishing'. Burnishing means to polish or make shiny and this certainly applied when we were using 'bone' folders or 'plastic' ones, especially on darker coloured card. The result of running the folder tool over the fold did make the cardstock shiny. Most crafters have now invested in TEFLON folder tools which replaced many previously used folding tools. The result is no longer shiny.

Perhaps we should simply refer to this action as 'firmly crease' rather than 'burnish'...
