Use Amaco Rub 'n Buff Metallic Finishes for decorating or antiquing wood, plaster, pottery, metal, leather, or gessoed surfaces. Rub on and buff to a beautiful luster. For hard-to-reach areas, thin with turpentine and apply with brush. Colors can be blended.
Each tube contains ½ oz (15 ml), enough to cover up to 20 square feet. (One square meter equals approximately 10.6 square feet.)
Note — The formula for Rub 'n Buff has been modified. It now exhibits the qualities of a creamy paste rather than a stiff, toothpaste consistency. The liquid medium used in Rub 'n Buff's manufacture may appear to separate as it is pushed out of the tube. This is not a defect. The medium and pigment will automatically blend on the palette.
Color Chart Note — Use this color chart as an approximation of the real color. If exact color matching is necessary, use actual samples of the materials.

Comments about Amaco Rub 'n Buff Metallic Finishes:
Have used Rub n Buff to touch up frames in the past. Bought a tube recently to mask the old beat-up oak frame on my bathroom medicine cabinet. Covered it beautifully! Then I used it to update the kitchen cabinet hardware. Easier than spray-paint and more economical too. A little tube goes forever.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

I love this product!
from New York
I actually use a small paintbrush when I am restoring picture frames and mirror frames. The product really lasts and I have even used it on lamp bases. We restore a lot of gone with the wind lamps and the gold wash is long gone. I use either gold leaf rub on or antique gold and it revitalizes the piece without removing its historical value.
This product is versatile and excellent for all types of art

One small tube can cover a lot of area. Gave me just the colors I needed and easy to apply by hand. I used it for detailing armor made from worbla. Make sure you have an appropriate polishing cloth.
