Chrome paint?

Does anyone make small bottles of "chrome" paint for brushing on? I checked Testors, Scalecoat, and MBK. Only saw a Testors spray can, #1290.
 Thanks,
Joe D

I've got a saved bookmark for MOLOTOW LIQUID CHROME and all the videos I've seen on it so far have me convinced, but I have yet to try it.

I think that's what I saw today at Hobbytown, but $15! Site you linked to has much better pricing. I have used silver markers for window frames on locos. Might have to give it a try.

Seconded for the Molotow Chrome paint markers, they come in different tip sizes (1,2,4 mm) and you can get them on eBay or Amazon as well. Nice to use for lenses or detail touch-up when you don't want to deal with Alclad and putting down some enamel first.
