Product Questions and Answers

I need a red pen that will still look red on black paper. Will this one work?

- Asked by H.v on 04-Mar-14

This Krylon leafing pen is a metallic copper. If desiring a true red pen that will look red on a black surface, try Sharpie Paint Pens.

- Answered by MisterArt on 05-Mar-14

Should I use a sealer after using a gold leaf pen?

- Asked by Dorota on 10-Dec-13

This is like enamel paint in pen form, so there is no sealer required.

- Answered by MisterArt on 11-Dec-13

Can you kindly tell me if the Krylon Leafing Pen can be used outdoors?

- Asked by Basil Pinto on 14-Dec-12

The Leafing Pens by Krylon are for indoor and outdoor surfaces.

- Answered by MisterArt on 17-Dec-12

What is the best way to store these pens - e.g. upright, horizontal, etc.?

- Asked by Patrice on 13-Oct-12

We would suggest storing these pens in a upright position, possibly in a pen holder.

Rated by: Savina in A little cabin in the woods
This product is not Good For Embellishing Drawings. This was my first time using a leafing pen, and I was so excited when I ordered it. I was planning on embellishing my graphite drawings with it by adding a thin line around a drawing, etc. Unfortunately the nib on this pen isn't suited for that type of thing. You can only use the flat portion of the nib - you can't use the edges, as they don't produce any leaf. This means that you can't draw a thin line of the product and you can't draw around a portion of the drawing that you don't want to be touched by the leafing (in other words, if I drew a wildlife scene and didn't want the leaf to go on the graphite, I couldn't draw the leaf around it because the nib is too thick and it's awkward trying to navigate the pen using only the flat edge). I imagine this would be great for other uses, such as leafing a picture frame or a craft project, as the leafing itself is very pretty and looks very similar to actual gold leaf - it doesn't look cheap or off colored. Unfortunately it just didn't suit my needs as someone who draws.

I just started using these pens ,Have a gold and silver.That little bit of shine on my cards really stands out. You get such beautiful results.I highly recommend these pens.
Rated by: Shelley T in Dallas, TX
I love these paint markers. They are easy to use and provide a rich metallic accent to my projects. They're fabulous for polymer clay.
Rated by: Susan H. in Northampton, MA
the color is beautiful but the performance is inconsistent . . . the chisel point on mine is rough and uneven.
Rated by: Dawn M. in Highland Lakes, NJ
Great for adding metallic effects and edging in my mixed media paintings, and easy to use.
Rated by: Esther S. in Green Forest, AR
I love this product, the Krylon Leafing Pen, is great to use, the point stays sharp, the colors are really pretty, and It is easy to use, it is just like writing with a ball point pen.
Rated by: Sherry G. in Albion, IA
I love these pens...I've tried other metallics but these are the best...
Rated by: Lisa D. in Wayne, NJ
I use these all of the time for my altered books, journals, and anything else that could use a burst of metallic accenting. They work extremely well and I try to keep myself well stocked.
Rated by: Heather L. in New Orleans, LA
EXCELLENT! Super durability and long lasting. Used a single pen for over six months, frequently. Tends to rub off a little on plastic unless you varnish or seal it. Otherwise, superb!
Rated by: Karen M. in Decatur, GA
I have used three different Krylon Leafing Pens: Gold, Silver and Copper. All work well on a variety of surfaces. All allow great control when applying. So far, none of them has leaked!
Rated by: Jeanie D. in Shallotte, NC
I use the Krylon Leafing Pens on several different projects. They add just that needed touch of pizazz. They are easy to use and I can let the children use them since they dry so fast.
Rated by: annette W. in Weaverville, CA
I used this over acrylic on canvas,went on smoothly.Great product
Rated by: Philippa S. in Rome, NY
These pens are very useful. A little metallic accent goes a long way to add extra interest and highlights to a mixed media composition. I also use them to edge cardstock. I hold the card with one hand and push it into the felt of the pen. I run the pen down the edge and get a consistent narrow gold edge on both sides of the card. Quick and easy.
Rated by: Shirley S. in Los Angeles, CA
these pens are a secret that hardly anyone seems to have, and they are fabulous
Rated by: Lili C. in San Jose, CA
works great on most surfaces and looks good!
Rated by: Loyce C. in San Diego, CA
These pens were recommended by one of the ATC artists and they are true to the recommendation. They are truly great, Vivid and bright.
Rated by: Teri T. in Altamonte Springs, FL
Work wonderfully on all types of metallics,brads & eyelets,frames; also cool on chipboard, just be sure to prime well before application & follow instructions for storing!
Rated by: Susan L. in Rolla, MO
I am a certified stamping nut!! I love to create. Krylon leafing pens are the best I have found. I just bought two, Silver and Gold, but I am going to get the others too. They are sooo smooth and easy to use. It makes my creations look really professional. Thanks for carrying such great products and I will be back for more!!!
Rated by: Jo Beth H. in Nottingham, MD
These markers are an excellent product. I bought them for edging my craft items and they work wonders. I bought all three colors and with this variety, I can achieve just the look that I want. I would buy them again.
Rated by: Patricia R. in NYC, NY
They are simply the best. A little hint...there is a slit in the middle of the nib. You can make perfect borders.
Rated by: Lori B. in Feeding Hills, MA
These markers are the best I have ever used. The chisel point helps perfect your paint strokes. My lines are cleaner and brighter than ever.
Rated by: Katherine B. in Wills Point, TX
Really quality product! I even mixed the gold and silver markers to repair a silver-leaf frame. I was also amazed at how fast the service was. I'll be back.
Rated by: Marsha G. in Evansville, IN
Is it real or is it Krylon Metallic? I almost feel like I'm cheating when I use these markers! They make your project look like the real McCoy and only you know it's not! I'd say a step under actual leafing, but way less expensive and way less mess and waste. What easier way to add that dramatic metallic touch than to "color" it on? Hats off to the folks at Krylon for a great product!
Rated by: Timaree C. in Kingman, AZ
Shine, shine, shine!! Love them! I haven't seen any that really look so metallic even on paper.
Rated by: Dorinda L. in McCall, ID
I have used these pens on a number of posters and signs for our community. They really are vibrant and dry pretty fast. I use them on materials (plastic/ nylon etc...) Good for Big Lettering or just High Lighting! Long lasting too.
Rated by: Donnalda S. in Palm Springs, CA
These are the absolute best metallic markers. They will reflect other colors placed next to them. The pen flows beautifully and they hold up for a long time. None better.
