  • Rub N Buff (optional. We used silver Rub N Buff.)

We used a grey paint that wasn’t too thick. Thick paint might bubble the paper. We wanted a light coat. Make sure you go over the edges of each piece.

After the paint dries, rub some Rub N Buff on very lightly using a dry tissue or paper towel. Do not coat it thickly. Just use light strokes.
