I love pineapples since they are the symbol for hospitality. I found this poor little guy at the D.I. for $1. Its made of plastic resin. I sprayed it with black spray paint (thought about leaving it shiny black, because it looked pretty good, but then I wouldn't get to use my new tube of Rub N Buff). I put tiny amounts of the paint on the end of the q-tip and gently spread it over an area, then rubbed it out with a t-shirt. Took about 5 minutes. Now I have a "pewter" pineapple!
This stuff was really easy to use. Couple things to keep in mind. First, it is oil based, so it smells and if you get it on your fingers, you'll need mineral spirits to clean up (I wore gloves and used q-tips so I didn't have to do any cleaning). Next, you use a TINY amount of paint. You don't have much work time, so put it on in the spot you are working on, then quickly grab your cloth and start rubbing and buffing. That's about all there is to know about the product!
