    Like many finishes, CA (cyanoacrylate or 'Krazy Glue') finish is applied to the object while it spins on the lathe. At Penchant 4, as few as six or as many as twelve coats of CA can be applied to protect the decorative elements.  It is then polished and buffed to a high gloss. CA is considered to provide a very durable finish; but it is not indestructible.  Typically, CA finishes are only applied to wood or other organic materials.
