    Very interesting (y) In the past, I've used an old kitchen grate polish called "Zebo". Had the tube for years, as only tiny amounts are required. It's the consistency of oil paint, and contains graphite, I believe. And like oils, a little can go an awful long way if you're not careful:rolleyes: Stippled on, allowed to dry, then buffed up with a soft brush or cotton bud, it can then be enhanced with metal powders.
    But I like the sound of a graphite stick, as it should give more control. Love these threads.

    Thanks, Alan. I'm glad you liked the article. I'll have to take a look at Zebo too, sounds like another very interesting way to go with metallics.

    Aluminum finger print powder works well too.(y)

    Graphite was already depicted in an article from the 70s of the last century. Here you go further. compliments
