Ok, now you’re going to make sure your items aren’t near anything you care about. Find a well-ventilated area, and put down drop cloths, put on an apron, do whatever you need to do to keep everything neat. I suggest donning those disposable gloves right about now. Have a handy extra roll of paper towels nearby, too.

Apply the Rub ‘n Buff to the plastic goggles. I like to use different colors to give it more of a hand-crafted feel. For this pair, I started with silver on the body and Spanish copper on the piece meant to hold the lenses. The buttons on the side are gold leaf. Each color gets its own Q-tip to avoid contamination. You could also use cheap paintbrushes to apply this, but remember, anything you use will need to be thrown away.
