Gilder's Paste? Hmmm. Eureka! uh-oh

I was just over at the kitchen forum. (I'm in the middle of a very painful whole house makeover.)

Anyhow, I discovered a link to Gilder's Paste. Has anyone used this on garden art, garden pots, fairy figurines, etc?

It sounds just like Rub n Buff . As for using it ... it REALLY looks nice . It's like the icing on the cake. It gives awesome highlights & Lowlights. Michaels has Rub n Buff in alot of different colors. I'd suggest trying a tube .... you'll like it !

Yes, It sounds like Rub n Buff. Does it hold up outside? I have some old cast iron planters that I'm thinking of spray painting and then adding some highlights. I also have some resin angels and fairies. Do think that will work?

I never used it outside .... but it seems permanent once it's on. I think it would do okay .

I have a homemade ceremic piece that was given to me, and it was done in rub n buff. It was outside for over a year, and was fine. I put it in storage for hurricane weather, and it has not been put back outside. I forgot about it-LOL
