Burnishing is a technique by which we can create crisp and sharp folds. Sometimes, you may have noticed tiny cracks on your folds. This is because the paper is too tick to be folded so easily. Hence, we put pressure on our folds so that they become crisp and flat and this is called burnishing. The official tool used for this purpose is something like a bone folder. But you can simply use the bulging side of a spoon or anything which is curved and a little heavy. A heavy scissors also fulfills the purpose. Let’s see some pictures to understand better.

This is how a fold looks before burnishing.

.....and that's how you burnish.....

and that's the perfect fold after burnishing......
