    I just rubbed and buffed a Goodwill frame. There was paper on the back which hid a problem. Someone had glued the glass in with something horribly sticky. I removed it with Goo Gone. It was a sticky gooey mess. It could have been hot glue–I don’t know. It took a few hours to do. Then I chose a gold (Gold Leaf) and rubbed it on with my fingers and a small old paint brush. However it took a while, since I did back and front. After I was done, I realized that I was not breathing well. I should have used it in a more ventilated place.. I did not read all the directions first, stupid me. The stuff is also flammable. SO BEWARE! This product was around in the 70’s. It does a good job, however.
