RE: Touching Up the Silver on HP35 / 45
In my understanding, the foil is exactly what leafing is (anyone remember getting a CRC Handbook of Chemistry & Physics with the foil to put your name on it?).

In my opinion the various leafing pens work better if the desired color is more like aluminum; slightly on the bluish end of the spectrum. The actual silver leaf (foil) which you can also get at Michael’s, is a warmer hue; more like real chrome plating.

The foil is relatively fragile—it will rub off what you put on with only a little more effort than what you needed to transfer it in the first place, so it is not good for high wear areas unless it’s only a “display” calculator.

Fortunately, most of the calculators appear in those areas to use paint and so are more “aluminum-colored” to my eye.-kby
