Color Name: Gold Leaf Verified Purchase
I purchased this item due to a high priced designer recommending it to change my silver wood frames to gold. I was hesitant since I paid several hundred dollars for the frames but my only other alternative was to replace the entire frame at a frame shop at several hundred dollars more. So, with little instruction from the designer, I went to work. At my surprise, it was super simple, looks fantastic and definitely a professional appearance. My only recommendation is to wear gloves, preferrably surgical and apply the thick buff to a board, spread somewhat evenly on a cloth before applying. In other words, it comes out in a thick log, similar to toothpaste. If you apply it that way, it spreads on heavy which is not always the best way to apply. Start with a small amount for a less clumpy look. Tube is small but goes a loooonnngg way...one tube covered two frames 4' x 4' with 1/2 a tube left over.

Color Name: Gold Leaf Verified Purchase
I collect nutcrackers. The gold finish on one of my nutcrackers has started to chip off. I asked at the art department at the local college what I could use to repair the gold finish. I was told to use a rub on gold paint. It would repair the finish and give it a professional look.

I searched the Internet for this product and am thoroughly happy with it. It did exactly what it said it would do, and my nutcracker looks brand new. I put a small amount on my finger tip and applied it to the damaged area -- after a light sanding. A gentle buffing when it was dry created the satiny finish I wanted. It was easy to use and cleaned up in a jiffy. No mess, no smell. It can also be applied with a brush in intricate designs or small spaces.

This is an easy product to recommend. Perfect for a crafter or artist.

Color Name: Pewter Verified Purchase
I bought this Rub 'n Buff Wax Metallic Finish on the off-chance I could use it to transform brass hinges into pewter-look hinges. You see, I'd replaced a cabinet's brass pull with new pewter one. I did not want to replace the corresponding brass hinges, but was also feeling too lazy to take the hinges off the cabinet to refinish them. Instead, I put a very small amount of this product onto a soft cloth and rubbed it onto the visible portion of each hinge while it was still in place on the cabinet. IT WORKED! The hinges' finish now looks pewter. Each hinge moves easily without stiffness and without disturbing the new finish. In fact, the hinges do not look as though they have been "coated" with anything. They just appear to have always had a pewter finish. (Maybe it helped because I only used a very small amount and rubbed it well into the surface of the hinge?) Also, when I checked on the hinges only a day after applying this product, the finish gave me every impression that it is permanent and did not transfer any tint when I gently rubbed it with a cloth. ONE NOTE: This wax metallic finish is fairly easy to control, but I did get a tiny spot on the cabinet while applying it to one hinge. I wiped immediately, but it did not come off completely. Therefore, even if you are lazy like me, do buy some painter's tape and take the time to surround each hinge with tape to protect your cabinet during this process!

Color Name: Pewter
We used this on all the door hinges in a large house. I mixed the pewter and the silver leaf together and the hinges turned out looking like brushed nickle. Just tape it off like you would any painting job and rub. Perfect results.

Color Name: Antique Gold
I like this product, and use it on a variety of surfaces, like bone, wood, etc. However, they have discontinued most of the colors I used (more cuts to come soon!), and the product has some annoying problems. It's a shame that this once good product seems to be "on its way out."

I also have a lot of cracked caps. And, though it does thin with turpenoid products, they also change the color - making it a little darker and harder to apply (doesn't stick as well). Also, one tube in the sampler pack CAME already dried out and hard, and one was all chalky and pasty and wouldn't stick to anything (Patina).

They told me, too, to try reconstituting the dried out tubes. But - really - you shouldn't have to do that to new product. Like the caps, that is a design/product flaw. They will send you more caps. But with a problem that common, they should just use a better quality cap to start with.

Also, as of this date, the colors don't match the images above. I'll see if I can upload a picture of my color chart. The Gold Leaf is really bright gold - like leaf! And the Grecian Gold is almost exactly the same as the leaf - or maybe a tiny fraction of a shade more orangey. The European Gold is a little more brown than the first two. It's the Antique Gold that is the more pinky color of the Euro swatch. The Spanish Copper is really coffee-colored. The swatch that's currently on the Spanish Copper looks like Ruby - except the Ruby is very metallic. And of course the Patina that I got was lighter than the swatch (maybe due to the chalky-pasty problem).

Color Name: Pewter Verified Purchase
Rub n buff is the best stuff, I've used it for lots of things, picture frames, lamp base, kitchen cabinet hardware, bedroom drawer pulls. I even diluted it with turpentine and painted a formica dresser. If you use it on kitchen cabinet hardware or anything that you will handle frequently, you have to coat it with a product also made by Aamco, the product is a water based sealant specifically made for rub n buff, that's what I used on my kitchen cabinet hardware. Rub n buff is somewhat messy so you have to be careful when you apply it not to get it on anything, I used a small brush for the kitchen cabinet hardware. It comes off clean with turpentine. My son has used it to coat flower pots for professional use. You could use it for scrapbooking. I am not affliated with Aamco, amazon sent me an email to review the product.
