sharpening scrapers

BQ in VT
>I just purchashed the crown tools bowl scraper with interchangable tips. What is the best way to sharpen them? I was told to hone the top face on a stone and then use a burnisher to raise a burr. I cannot get the burr right-I'm not getting one that cuts. Normally I would take a scraper to the grinder and one fast pass would do the trick. Any suggestions on how to get a good cutting edge? Thanks in advance.
