RL River Rock and Suede are both considered "flat" finishes - and therefore
are not washable.

They will get dirty, and they burnish (show a mark if you rub them)

Dark colors are better - they don't show the dirt so much - that's why all

They are not recommended to be topcoated with a clear - it ruins the color

Which ever one you pick - read and follow the directions on the can - watch
the video on and call 1-800-379-POLO if you still have

Find a spot that doesn't need to look good and practice your techinque

Good Luck!! ........

Let me know how it turns out!
