    Hi Gary
    I got the powdered printers ink ( 2 types of gold and silver) from The Palette,which was a shop in the US run by Phil Kessling,which unfortunately has long been closed down.I think i've had my inks for about 20 years.I've used all kinds of printers inks,but this stuff never loses it's lustre.Mixed with Liquin and any oil colours you like,it's the dog's bollocks.
    I wouldn't have a clue where you could get anything similar,but there must be someone out there that does know.I'd try printers first of all.

    I wonder if they are similar to the "Rose" metallic powders. Like you Brian I have some in several shades of Gold & Silver. I have also mixed with Liquin or the oil off Humbrol metallic before stirring.

    Not with the same awesome results as you though Brian.

    Got my powders from a Euro show many many moons ago. Not sure if they are still available .

    Peter.
