Guy, when I make acrylic pens I sand starting 600 grit and go to up to 12000. Next I do a thing my son told me about I use Meguiar's G12310 PlastX Clear Plastic Cleaner & Polish. It is a polish used on car headlights. I run the lathe at a medium speed and apply the polish and buff it out. Then as a final step I use a set of buffing pads hooked to my lathe. I also use the same steps when I have used Cyano Acrylate Glue as one of the finishes on wood pens. The buffing pads are not necessary, it's just something I like to do, it will also take care of any really tiny scratches that the polish missed.
