My New Friend Rub “n Buff

I’m finally back from being on the road for most of the last month. Over the last month, I spent a week in Gatlinburg, Tn working at a convention; most of a week in California attending a convention with the hubby; and 10 days in China visiting the daughter. All of it was exhausting but very fun. I hope to eventually post some photos from the trips.

Today, I want you to meet my new friend  Rub ‘n Buff that I met in blogland.


I purchased this tube at Hobby Lobby for $3.99.  I had a little difficulty locating it but was finally successful. When I asked an employee for assistance, I was told that they didn’t carry anything like that. I knew that they did because I had seen it in another Hobby Lobby store before. I found it near the acrylic paints and other foil leaf products.   I have had these three crosses on the mantle in the den for quite some time but it bothered me a little that the finishes were all different.IMG_1585Let’s get a closer look. IMG_1586 The gold one stood out but the dark ones seemed to fade into the brick background. So I put    Rub ‘n Buff to the rescue. I simply put a tiny drop on my finger and rubbed it where I wanted the gold accent. IMG_1589  This shot shows one done. It already looks better. And here is the finished product.

The two darker crosses show up much better after you used rub-n-buff on them. Lovely display.

Thanks for trying AMACO's Rub 'n Buff. Your crosses are a nice collection, and the all gold look is really striking. I would like to post this on our Facebook page and will link back to your site.

My mom told me about rub and buff years ago. I used it on her mirrors to brighten them up. Michael's and AC Moore carry it too.
