    Antique White Rub'n Buff / alternative

    I can't find any white Rub'n Buf, does anyone know if this is really discontinued? Any other tips for this newbie you can offer as a replacement for Rub'n Buff on wood plaques?

    Bonnie,

    It seems to be available several places on-line. All three of these also have brick-and-mortar stores, so it might also be available there, if they are in your neighborhood.

    Thanks Gary, all 3 sites indicate out of stock for white. Anything you can use as a replacement.

    There's one vendor on amazon with a 12-color set that includes the white. Search for the 12 color sampler set.

    Hi Bonnie,

    Sorry - I didn't read the sites carefully enough. It does look the product may have been discontinued, but here are a few sites that claim to have stock remaining.

    As for a substitute, you might look at DecoArt's Metallic Lustre. They have a "White Frost" shade:

    Hope this helps.

    Note that DecoArt’s product is water-based, which is different from Rub’n’buff. It does work well but goes on a little differently. Practice on scrap first.

    Bonnie,

    I have one tube of Antique White 76366F Rub'n Buff that is still in the package unopened.
    You can have it if you pay the shipping.

    Appreciate that very much. Will try the water based product. Was really looking for an alternative product.
