I bought this to use on a faux-leather storage ottoman. You know--the kind that you get at Target for $40--they're terrible-looking, but sometimes that's all you have room for. Well, I got tired of the horrible brown pleather, and decided to Rub n Buff the hell out of it. It's the best $5 upgrade you can do in 10 minutes or less.
I used Grecian Gold, which is a warm, "old" gold, and definitely not a cool-toned champagne gold. If you do an image search for "etruscan jewelry" you'll get a sense of the warm feel. All you do is dot on a bunch of pea sized blobs all over the surface you want to cover, and then swirl it around with a rag (I used an old sweatsock!) It dries very fast, and very patchy, so you'll want a second coat. By fast, I mean minutes. Then just let it cure for a day or so to really let the wax harden. Like shoe polish, once its buffed smooth and shiny, it doesnt transfer anywhere.
My biggest fear was that someone would sit on the ottoman and get up with gold sparkles all over their butt, but I can assure you that hasn't happened. I can wipe my hand across the surface and sit on it with black pants, and there's no sparkly transfer. (FYI, I did not have the same luck with some small metal hair barrettes. I guess it depends how much finger oil you have, and how much an item is going to be handled--because the barrettes quickly became kind of dull and gummy-looking.) But the ottoman turned out great---much more cheerful than the brown faux-leather monstrosity that it was before.
I probably used 1/3 of the tube to do this storage cube--and I like it with this slightly transparent look. If I get sick of it and want to add another layer, I have plenty left in the tube.
(Pro Tip: Try it on seashells, rocks, figurines, and almost any decorative object. It's fun, and it take almost no time.)
Update May 2016:
Just wanted to come back and say I found one small instance of the gold finish transferring off----if you touch it accidentally with something that is slightly hot, a thin layer of the Rub n Buff might transfer. But you'd expect the same thing from shoe polish or candle wax. I accidentally touched a decorative Rub n Buffed scorpion figurine with the edge of a cooling-down heating pad, and ended up with a small gold dot on the heating pad! The figurine was fine. So like any wax, this stuff melts, so just be careful.
Overall I would recommend this product but don't expect it to work miracles.
That hand you see there in the picture is on the package. Not someone holding it. The tube is about the size of a super glue tube.
