Rub-n-Buff cream is used for decorating wood, plaster, pottery, metal and etched glass surfaces. You can create your own rub-n-buff cream in varying metallic colors using this simple do it yourself recipe.

Add a few drops of “Boiled Linseed Oil” to some metallic powders (such as Pearl Ex or Powdered Pearls), mix to a thick, paste-like consistency. Store in a small jar with a tight fitting lid.

noteBe sure to use boiled linseed oil as a binder, not raw linseed oil which will not dry after application.

To use, apply to desired surface with a soft cloth wrapped around your finger or use a cotton swap for smaller areas.

Boiled Linseed Oil is available in the paint aisle of Lowes & Home Depot. It can also be purchased online at Amazon for under $4

    • I can’t wait to try this. My husband always used boiled linseed oil whenever he did woodworking to keep the wood from drying out and keeping it’s natural colour. I look forward to adding colour to match marred wood and make it look good again.

      Thank you so very much for this super idea…

  3. Hey as a hobby wood worker I have used both types of linseed oil. The raw linseed oil will dry but it can take months for the process, where the boiled linseed oil purchased from a hardware store has additives which speed up the process to about 72h. I never thought to use a pigment powder to add colour, thanks for the tip.
