Has anyone tried using Rub and Buff on their ceramics?

Yes, I have used it on non functional pieces to add color and it works well. I rakued some elephants that came out too evenly dark grey so I used the silver to add highlights. It was a bit unforgiving on the non glazed surface ( sank in and stayed put ) but I imagine you could control it better on a glazed surface. I've also used the copper color with good results.

Yes. I have used Rub and Buff on a lamp base, clay and wood sculptures, plaster casts, and other 'objets d'art'. I have also used it to alter colors.
R 'n' B can be thinned (read the package). It goes on smoothly with good coverage and makes a nice sheen when buffed. However it is not to be used on products made for food service.
