Could anyone recommend a good substitute for the agama metal pastes please? Specifically the steel and gunmetal ones.

Rub 'n Buff is similar to gilding wax.

Yep, it is gilding wax, original use was picture frame highlighting etc.
The pewter would probably work for gunmetal, mixed with a bit of
silver works for steel.
Just a bit messy to mix, and the gilding wax Iíve used is a bit stiffer
than Rub n Buff.
 ;D

If you look at the Amazon UK link, Rub n Buff is one of the more
expensive options over there.
