The Original Wax Metallic Finish

by Rub 'n Buff


Made from imported carnauba waxes, fine metallic powders, and select pigments, Rub 'n Buff gives almost any surface a new look in minutes. This unique blend gives objects decorated with Rub 'n Buff a finish that no paint can duplicate. It can be applied to any clean, dry surface as well as over previously painted surfaces. One 1/2 oz. tube covers up to 20 square feet. It's easy to apply. Just rub onto any surface with finger or soft cloth, then buff to a lustrous finish. Rub 'n Buff is ideal for picture frames, stenciling, faux finishing, antiquing, home decor, restoration, and crafts.

Very easy to use. You can easily turn anything into something beautiful! Customize to your personal liking! I like to mix a couple of different colors of Rub n Buff.
Rated by: Cutest Feet in Potomac, Maryland
I have been using this product for decades to make ordinary leather shoe colors gorgeous metallic! It wears beautifully and lasts for years.
Rated by: Maria P. in Olga, Washington
I am very pleased with this product. I have been using it for many years. I use it mostly on fine art projects. I have recently been using it on polymer clay sculptures. It works beautufully. I especially like the antique gold. It has a very warm old fashioned quality. It gives my art a truly antique look. I had trouble finding the antique gold in retail stores. I was so pleased to be able to buy it on Misterart.com. Thank you so much for the prompt delivery. I will definitely be buying more products from you in the future.
Rated by: Lynn G. in Montana
First off, let me acknowledge the staff at this company! I had a problem with shipment(1st time ever),called company and got a replacement overnight! GREAT CUSTOMER SERVICE!!! Refreshing to find a company like this. Tried this product for the first time and what a product! Reviewers were not kidding when they said it was easy and a little goes a long way. This product blends beautifully,extended work time so you don't feel rushed like paint. No lines from overlapping work areas. You can achieve a matte type look or a high shine with minimal buffing which only takes moments. Covers extremely well over painted surfaces which I was concerned about as it states for "porous surfaces", and nothing shows through. The metallic "silver" looks great, not cheap looking like I have found with many metallic paints/leaf. Whoever created this product was a genius! Goodbye to expensive quarts of paint on so many things, I am in awe!

I used this on an tarnished brass headboard and it looks brand new. Great product!!!!!!!!!!
Rated by: gail m. in east brunswick, NJ
the paint is wonderful to work with, comes out smooth and buffs to a nice shine. delivery was quick as usual when i order from here. this paint is great to use if you are making altered tins, boxes, frames etc. i am going to order more soon, different colors. there is a great selection here.

Very fast shipping, great packaging, item as described. Buy from again. Thanks!!
Rated by: Wilbur M. in Stony Brook, NY
I collect and restore antique kerosene lamps. Rub and Buff is perfect for creating finishes. Mixing "Ebony" with any of the golds creates a great bronze, which I use often. MisterArt.com has a good selection, and quick delivery. I can rely on him.
Rated by: Rhonda M. in Eubank, KY
Love this product. It gives such a nice touch to any project
Rated by: Dennis T. in Denton, TX
I have been told about this product from another professional, so I thought I would give it a try. I located the product at the store they requested but only had limited colors. So, I got online anf found MisterArt and also located the rub 'n buff and i was amzed on how many diferent colors were available. So I ordered at least eight diferent colors and was very pleased with all of them.. I would definitely recommend MisterArt because of their abundance of colors and shipment was fast and inexpensive.

Product works like they say.
Rated by: Bonnie S. in Capon Bridge, WV
Great product but need more colors. Easy to apply and quick shipping. It works great on our engraved plaques but need some techniques on how to remove it from large surfaces once dry.
Rated by: Connie B. in Arlington, TX
Not just for furniture. This product provides excellent coverage for other crafts & art as well. Use on clay sculpts & jewelry for an antique finish or inexpensive gold, silver, etc look. Consider "painting" it onto a branch to use as the top of the wall hanging of your next masterpiece. Use ventilation as the smell can get a little overwhelming. Outdoor furniture that has gotten worn looking can look brand new with this product! Change the look of household items like lamps. I bought all the colors and have found so many uses! After trying some of the other colors I have found that they are just as useful. And I like that I can make "old" looking items I have appear new & trendy.
Rated by: Sarah V. in Lewisburg, WV
I do a lot of arts and crafts and my mom told me about this product so I had to try it. It works great!! Stays were you put it and adds a nice finish to whatever you're working with. Also very versatile on the types of surfaces it will work on.
Rated by: NEVA W. in RUSK, TX
RUB 'N BUFF IS A GREAT PRODUCT. I USED IT IN THE 70'S AND REMEMBERED HOW WELL I LIKED THE LOOK IT GIVES AS YOU RUB IT ON YOUR PROJECT AND IT DRIES TO A LONG LASTING AND BEAUTIFUL FINISH. I WAS EXCITED WHEN I FOUND YOU WEB SITE SO I COULD ORDER THIS PRODUCT TO TOUCH UP THE HARDWARE ON A PIECE OF ANTIQUE FURNITURE I OWN. THANKS AGAIN.

Great product. Easy to use. Color true to sample photo. Fast shipment from MisterArt.
Rated by: Diane C. in Lake Havasu City, AZ
I recently moved into a fairly new home. The hanging light fixtures in the dinning room and entry way were very nice, but I just couldn't stand the color and was not wanting to go through the expense of buying new ones. My new neighbor told me about a product called Rubb N Buff, so I got online and did a search. I was happy to find the product at Mister Art. The product was delivered to me within 3 or 4 days...I was so surprised at how quickly they filled my order. The product is unbelievable. My lights look gorgeous and no one would ever know I applied the finish myself...they look sooooo good. Thank you Mister Art!!! diane

I was very impressed at the variety of colors you offered, and the price was significantly better than the hobby stores (and they may only have 2 or 3 or the colors).

love rub n buff because it is so versatile. You can use it on just about any medium.
Rated by: cindy e. in Floris, IA
Why I like to purchase from Mr. Art, the rub n buff is FRESH, and service is quick. When I purchase from hobby store, the tubes can be outdated and hard.
Rated by: Harold S. in New Bern, NC
Product is very easy to use..accomplishes what my customers want. Have been buying this product for years.
Rated by: Betty M. in Beloit, WI
This is a fine product, goes on smoothly and uses little. I was so happy to see all the new colors in this metallic finish.
Rated by: Karen M. in Floris, IA
Have used this product for 3 plus years, it enhances engraving on glass and gives it a rich and professional appearance. I have it on glass blocks that are outside in the weather and still have alot of color.
Rated by: Patricia V. in Columbus, NC
I have used this product for a long, long time, and I love the finish. When buffed it looks like real metal instead of the dull painted look you get from sparay paints. You can get some amazing antique effects by mixing a coup of colors. If you want your work to look professional, I would definitely recommend this product. I do wish they would come out with a bronze!
Rated by: Kirsten H. in Westerly, RI
This stuff is fabulous. I have used it on frames, a mailbox, a light fixture, a fireplace screen and a ceiling medalion. I found that I could get a great oil rubbed bronze look combining spanish copper and ebony. Adding mineral spirits and painting on gives more work time and a more even coat on larger surfaces. I love it.
Rated by: Susan E. in burlington, WI
Rub & Buff's uses are only limited by your imagination. It's easy to use and lasts forever.
Rated by: Clayton C. in Marion, KY
Rub 'n Buff is amazing stuff! It is so easy to use, and the results are fantastic!
Rated by: Joan W. in Oak Forest, IL
LOVE this product. Wish I could find it in a bronze finish though. Will continue to buy it and spread the word.
Rated by: Stephen G. in Ontario, NY
Very easy to use. A little goes a long way. I only wish there were more common vibrant colors for me to acquire. I would like to have the ability to have at least the primary colors available so that I could mix some hues that are not available.
Rated by: Rosalie J. in Saratoga, CA
Great product, best of all it can be removed with paint thinner.
Rated by: Linda R. in New York, NY
This product is unbelievable--I buy it regularly to have on hand just for repair projects around the house. I use it not only on furniture and woodworking, but on rusted stainless steel. Truly excellent.
Rated by: Tamara C. in Annapolis, MD
I tried apllying gold leaf with awful results, then found rub and buff. It's easy to use and gives great results. I'll never try gold leaf again.
Rated by: carie m. in Orlando, FL
I have used this on metal, wood, ceramic - it works great on any application. Very easy to use, great results.
Rated by: Lori B. in Feeding Hills, MA
I love the antique gold Rub 'N Buff. It is the best product to use on wood that needs some tlc. I bought a large wood mirror at a consignment shop for $6.00. I rubbed it on and in minutes it looked brand new. Great results!!
Rated by: Melanie R. in Statesboro, GA
Rub n' Buff is great for all types of materials; wood, plastic and metal. Great for updating old picture frames and even give furniture a new look. My first adventure was an entertainment unit and it only took 1 1/2 tubes to complete this huge piece of furniture. Even a novice like myself can achieve great results with this product!!!
Rated by: John Z. in PLATTE CITY, MO
THIS IS SOME WAY COOL STUFF. PUT A SMALL DAB ON YOUR FINGER AND APPLY IT TO AN OBJECT. NOW YOU HAVE ALREADY GAINED THE CONFIDENCE OF A PRODUCT YOU WERE CONCERNED ABOUT AS TO HOW TO USE AND HOW DOES IT APPLY. LET YOUR AMAGINATION TAKE OVER AND YOU WILL DEVELOPE SOME REAL NEAT APPLICATIONS. AND YOU KNOW WHAT? SO LITTLE GOES SO FAR IT BECOMES VERY COST EFFICENT.
Rated by: Grace B. in Palm Coast, FL
I just love Rub'n Buff~! It performs 'miracles' on whatever you seem to put it on. Old picture frames come out looking better than new ones. Works great on furniture. Transforms old pieces into interesting new ones. This is fantastic stuff!

I used this on ceramics, It worked great!! Its easy to apply and comes off your fingers pretty easy. Its a wonderfull product.

Rub N'Buff is a great product. I use it on clay embellishments,embossed stamped images and brass charms. I have every color and use them all. If I don't care for the results I just use another color over it. Easy to use and cleans off your finger with a baby wipe.
Rated by: Lona P. in Connersville, IN
I am thrilled with this product. I purchased a black wrought iron shelf/towel bar combo and used the Antique Gold on it. Totally transformed the shelf into something beautiful. Also used Spanish Copper and Antique Gold on a rather plain looking brown wrought iron chandelier and again I was very pleased with the outcome. Made the piece look way more expensive than the purchase price.
Rated by: Zachary M. in Nutley, NJ
I ordered this product to highlight some leatherworking projects. One such project was a mask for a costume outing, and people could not believe how good it turned out. It takes a little practice to use the stuff effectively, so have some scrap pieces on hand before your first use.
Rated by: Joy M. in Madison, AL
This product exceeded expectations. I needed to change some gold frames and was faced with an expensive project as I had six prints, one of which was quite large. I received an estimate of $475.00 for the job. I ordered the Rub'N Buff Pewter and applied to the frames. In addition to being fun, the frames looked even prettier than the new frames that I would have ordered with just minutes of applying and buffing. The results are lovely and I'm truly delighted.
Rated by: Freda T. in Philadelphia, PA
I think this is an excellent product. I often use etching cream in decorating glass vases and I wanted a way to add color to the etched designes. With a wide variety of colors, Rub 'N Buff Metallic Finish is a great way to do just that. It's very easy to use and I'd recommend it to anyone!
Rated by: Linda D. in Hot Springs Village, AR
Rub n Buff is an awesome product. It's easy to apply, cleans-up fast, and most importantly, give a beautiful finish to whatever it is applied to. It's just so versatile. It is difficult to find Rub n Buff in stores . . . especially a wide color selection. And, I wish they'd make the product in a bronze color. Can't live without Rub n Buff!
Rated by: Lyn S. in Sarasota, FL
There are so many uses for this product that only your imagination could limit you! I use it to Highlight stencils, frames crafts, furniture, jewelry, etc…the nice thing about Rubnbuff, it’s cleaned up with just soap and water…I had been looking for this in craft stores but the color choices were limited and you save a lot of money buying it here and soooooo many colors…Try it you’ll like it!
