Is this the correct forum to ask this?

I've often read about the use of printer's ink for silver and gold metallic finishes...however, I've never read a brand name, where one can find this, and how much it costs (I've read "expensive" many times though.).

Could someone recommend a brand and maybe a location to purchase? Also, how does one use this? Is it thinned with mineral spirits, turp, thinner, water, alcohol...?

If this is not the correct forum to ask this, please feel free to remove.

Many thanks.

Thanks everyone.
