    rub n buff colour ?

    Hey guys, I'm looking into where I can get some rub n buff in Oz, and I came across one supplier who has it but has a whole lot of colours.

    There are 2 silvers on the chart, "Silver Leaf" looks like the right one.Does this name sound right to any rub n buff experts?

    Do you need to put a clear coat over this or does it dry hard?

    Cheers.

    You do not need clear coat, just buff it with a nice buffing cloth after you apply/buff it with your hands.

    And yes, Silver Leaf is the correct color.

    Yeah don't use any clear coat. It will dull the finish and ruin it. Buff the heck out of it and let it sit to dry out well before you wear it. That will keep it from rubbing off.

    Thanks for the replies everyone.

    To read how to do something is one thing but to watch it being done is brillant. Thumbs up to Seeker for this vid, it has answered my next few questions.

    Cheers.
