Where did my painting tip post go??

I thought I posted this twice but I don't see it anywhere except over on the craft forum. Anyway, I am sure some of you already do this but I thought it would be worth passing on.

As you know, I have been painting ornaments this week, some are flat pieces of cut out wood. I absolutely hate painting the sides of the cutouts but I really like for the entire piece to be finished. I purchased a Krylon 18K gold leafing pen at Michael's in the glue section and it works great. It has a flat nib and once you pump the pen to get the paint/ink flowing, you just go all the way around the ornament and the sides are finished in about four seconds. It costs about $6 but use the 40% off coupon. It comes in silver and bronze also. They also have it at Joann's and Hobby Lobby. I was so happy my friends told me about this and I know you will love it too.
