Thanks everyone for entering the contest!

My new best friend and it can be yours too!

Amaco Rub ‘n Buff, small package with a large impact.

One tube covers 20 sq. ft.


I started with this thrift store frame.

In it’s former life, I think it was a mirror.

It’s made of plastic, off white with dark gold highlights.

I dressed it up with flat black spray paint and used Rub ‘n Buff for highlights.

Silver Leaf Rub ‘n Buff.

I followed the directions on the package, you can rub it on with your finger or with a cloth. I feel more crafty when I get my hands dirty, or my fingers silver in this case. I used fingernail polish remover to remove from my fingers and then washed my hands with soap and water.

I think it turned out great and it looks much better all dressed up.

I’m using the frame to showoff a smaller picture.

I am very happy with Rub ‘n Buff. I am thinking about all the things that I can use it on!

If you’d like to try some, I’m giving away one tube of

Amaco Gold Leaf Rub ‘n Buff.
