Rub and buff

I just finished putting rub n buff on my new bucket about 3 days ago. When I touch anything the has rub n buff I still get it on my hands. I have rubbed it with a cloth many times. Any suggestions?

Live with it, and don't touch your helmet on the silver ;) At least that's what I did :) I have the same problem- you will never get it to where you get absolutely nothing to come off, at least I have not found it to be the case. Just be careful when handling it so you don't get it all over.

That is sort of what I was thinking but was not sure. Thanks!

Mine usually dries after a week or so. Of course, I buff it periodically throughout the week.

How do you keep this stuff from being a mess and trying to keep the dust off of it so it dosn't stick.
Dust must be a pain in the neck to keep off RnB if it is not dry.

Hmmm, I have never had a problem with it. Once you buff it, nothing sticks to it.
So dust comes off it easy and dosn't make a mess when cleaning?
It dosn't smear and smudge, but it can rub off?

The reason I ask is I may be getting some Battlestar Galactica Cylon armor and I may use RnB on it and I don't want a big mess.
Theres a whole lot of silver surface there and nothing else to grab on to. :lol:

I used a very thin layer of rub n buff, buffed the crap out of it 'til it almost got hot, then I did another coat of the thing and again buffed til it got hot. After that I had no problems with any of it ever rubbing off on me or my clothes... I don't know if you guys are using primer but I'd probably reccomend it. :)

Did you use Seekers bare plam hand method, or a cloth to buff it?
When compared to Jango's armor, How much RnB would be needed to do this, helmet, chest plate, collar, backpack shoulder bells?

Bare palm works better. I used to use kleenex but it works better with your palm. Honestly, I bet one tube would do it, but I would get 2 just in case. That should be more than enough to do all of that. I can easily do all my armor and my bucket with a tube.

They are chrome plated Styrene, but I don't have $1000+ to chrome plate it, hence the RnB.

LoL damn its that high? so its like the chrome plating on the little plastic bumpers in model car kits?

and i dunno why but I was looking for a plastic chroming kit and found this instead I thought it was funny

You can always send it off to be chromed here is a place that will do a 12 inch circle for $15 bucks you could plate you whole suit for $100 probubly.

I just finished redoing all of my armor with rub and buff. I did excatly what I saw Seeker do at the tutorial with bare palm. Whenever I got any dark spots I rubbed them out with kleenex. After you set it aside for a few minutes, it actually feels cool and smooth like metal. If I rub it hard with my finger, I can get some to rub off but, with normal handling it is completely dry.

Here are some pics. I will weather with black acrylic tomorrow.

Did one tube of RnB do all of that?

Thanks. Actually its probably like an eighth of a tube. I found that the less I used the better it looked.

with r'n'b you're going to get a very aluminum look not very chromed. :)
