You are making me feel better, Dave. After you buff it, does it improve?

I'm of the opinion that...

Aquamix Enrich 'n Seal left blotchy sheen

We've hand rubbed 2 coats of Enrich 'n Seal on our travertine, which is honed, not polished. The sealer looks blotchy. My husband wants to know if buffing will help it.

Hey Marge! You have a new name!

Dave - From your comment I take it the Enrich 'n Seal is water-based? We haven't tried the Impregnator Pro yet. I know it's solvent based, but I haven't "experienced" the difference.
