Alas, I think this question was answered most recently like yesterday.

Do a forum search for "gold" "silver" and makeup...should be plenty of info.

Hey,

You can find the Mehron metallic powder on line easily.  I suggest mixing it with vegetable oil for easier cleanup than the mixer Mehron sells (or baby oil).  It will give you a great shine and not be bad for the llama at all.  It's what I've used on all my stuff in my portfolio.

Let me know how it goes and share some images!

Anyone know if this mixture with the babyoil can be run through an airbrush?

I wouldn't want to gum up the works with baby oil. The mixing liquid works through airbrush fine though. Use multiple thin layers though, too thick and you won't get any flow.

Any and everything you need can be had at "NAMIES" in North Hollywood, California.

I have a great silver in my hand right now, but i has no name or codes to give you as a reference.

Their number is (818) 655-9922

They are a huge secret supplier to the industry in Los Angeles.
