Easy DIY with Rub'n Buff Gold leaf

Today I tried Rub'n Buff in Gold Leaf , and let me saw wow!! OMG! 

I can't believe how easy it is to use and apply. Here's the thing... it's a metallic wax. Wipe on. Wipe off. That simple.

Easy Steps
1. Use cap to puncture tube.
2. Squeeze a small amount onto gloved finger tip.
3. Apply evenly with finger tip, using a gentle rubbing motion.
4. Buff for luster.
Done!! That simple.

Here's a picture after half application. You can see the difference. 

Before and after.

Dramatic close up. 

I would like to disclose that this was not a paid post. But if AMCO reads this and you want to send me a sample of.. lets say every color. I would be fine with that. If you are now on the hunt for this magic in a tube, try your local art store. I bought mine at one that does framing. It appears to be used for accenting picture frames. (I may need to grab this in other colors. I paid $5.69 for mine, and I would think this will last me a long time. Quite affordable. 

Thanks for stopping by. I hope this post is helpful to you. Take care.

Party Time!

I'd love to hear your thoughts on anything I post. It's kinda like going to the post office, I giggle like a school girl when I receive a new comment.
