Bits ‘n’ Bobs Boxes

September 20, 2010

RachVia a fabulous mixed media artist and You Tuber, RachO113, 

(who also loves Gary Reef, who, by the way, gave ME a shout out on his latest vlog, ♫ oh I ♥ him!!!),

…Anyway, as I was saying – Via Rach, I found a new element to incorporate into my mixed media work like my Faerie Boxes.  It is a wonderful product called Rub n Buff.  I used it on a foiling project using a recycled watch box and am so pleased – it looks fabulous!  Photos just don’t do this kind of thing justice, but I still think you’ll get the idea in this album I’ve put together on FaceBook.

I’d always had a heck of a time getting the desired effect and tried chalks, foiling pens, paints, etcetera, but never was happy with the results.  Now I am over the moon, Rub n Buff is perfect!  So easy to use and you just need such a tiny amount.  Only one teeny negative but it could just be me, it does kind of make me a bit loopy as it is petroleum based I think – but next time I’ll use better ventilation and it will be all good.

You can readily find this product on eBay and Amazon but in doing my research I found it at the best price in an on-line store I love; introducing Supplies On Demand.  Working with co-owners, webmaster, Dan and head of fulfillment, Jim, was like a shopper’s dream come true.  They did everything in their power to help me and made me know that I, their customer, was #1. 

I placed my order on September 16 in the afternoon, and received the package on September 18!  What, that quickly and shipping is only $1.99?!  What a sweet shop, thank you guys.

From the Supplies On Demand website:
