Start by using a very,very,very tiny bit-it can go a long way!

I'm currently waiting for the cold can of black paint to warm up a
bit so I can spray a couple squirt guns and try it out.

How long have you been waiting?!

Just toss it in a sink filled with warm water.

Ah,I see in another thread you've finished waiting and they're drying-good.

At this point I think that I prefer the dry brushing paint over the rub n buff....

Pictures later.

It will need another 'coat' of RubnBuff.

Also, you can thin it with mineral spirits/odorless turpenoid and paint it on as needed... even airbrush it, or so I'm told, but I've not tried that. 

Thinned RnB with a sponge is also nice.

Wax based finishes tend to work best over slightly matt surfaces which give something for the wax to latch onto. On smoother surfaces it's a question of patiently building up very thin layers.

They tend to excel at bringing out both fine surface texture and deep, fine lines on flater surfaces the effect does indeed tend to be a lot more subtle than drybrushing, which can be better at 'forcing' metallic highlights on relatively flat curves.
