    Very cool! Years ago, I used a gold sharpie to do the fine trim on the railing of our porch. It worked beautifully!

    I had a special plate that I gave to someone at each family get together, it was the Honor Plate. Before we ate or after the dishes we done, I had them sign their name and date it. It has been a very nice memory through the years. I used a Gold paint pen for that! I did wash it by hand however.
