A tip for painters

paintingfoolOctober 2, 2008

I thought I had posted this but since I don't see it I will try again.

As you know I have been painting ornaments all week. Some are the ones cut from a 1 ply plywood. I hate painting the sides so I purchased a Krylon 18K Gold Leafing pen with the broad nib - it works great. It comes in silver and bronze also, costs about $6 or $7 at Michael's but less with your 40% off coupon. It is in the glue section and also the Christmas craft section. Hobby Lobby and Joann's carries them also. Since the nib is about 1/8" wide, you just pump to get the paint saturated in the nib, then proceed to paint the sides. It takes all of about 5 seconds to do an ornament and it looks so pretty too. I even went around the edges of my spoon snowmen.

Try it, I know you will love it.

Thanks Bebe.....I do remember you posting about this but I didn't write it down at the time. Thanks for the reminder. I wrote it down, now if I can only remember to take the paper with me when I go to the store. ha ~Anj
