Default Gold Metallic Marker or Pen

I want to do Faux stitching and I want it to look like gold metallic thread. Which metallic marker/pen do you recommend? I have used some that the ink likes to glob out and I have used some that a thin line doesnt show much metallic.

I could always get in gear and use metallic thread and actually stitch it............dont think that can happen......

I would use one of the sparkley gel pens, I think they have more sparkle than a marker. You could also use Stickles, it comes out in a thin line and has tons of sparkle.

Can you get them anywhere there is stamping/scrapbooking supplies?

About 4 years ago I bought a Fiskars metallic gold pen, and believe it or not, it is still working. I love it because it has a nice thin consistent line. In fact, I used it a few days ago to do some faux stitching. I don't have a clue where I purchased it, and don't even know if it is still being manufactured...but if you can find one, I highly recommend it.

stickles is a glitter glue. but I dont' know that I'd be able to apply it in such a fine line like to make faux stitches. maybe you have a steadier hand. I'd be more apt to reach for a pen in this case.

I like Krylon, but you'd need to be careful as it will glob at times.

Uniball makes one, too that I like alot. It flows nice (like the Signo Gel Pen). Don't think it's 'sparkly', but it does make a fine, consistent line. HTH
