    Default Homemade ink

    Hello,Im new here.So my question is a bit of strange but hope will be interesting.It is a little bit kind of technical chalange.I want to make real metal ink as the inks used in printing industry with containing of metal particles.For this purpose I want to buy aluminium powder and mix it with some ordinary ink.The technical problem is that my wish for that ink is to work with casual pen,or pen-roll or some kind of stylo.So I'm amateur in chemistry.Could you please tell me the easiest possible way about producing that kind of ink working with casual pens containing aluminium pigment(aluminium powder or paste) and the correct proportions of ingredients and right way to do all that stuff.Thank you!

    Uni-Paint Pens come in the metallics you want. They are Opaque oil-based markers and very metallic. Also google Sanford Gold Coat metallic markers.
