You can just use food coloring thinned with a little water, or edible markers

Are you wanting to do the LV monogram in gold? In that case you can use gold lustre dust mixed with a clear alcohol to make the paint. Also to make it easier for you, you may want to make stencils of the L and V so you dont have to free hand them all. I would do the two letters seperately and just stencil the other letter over the one that has dried.

Either an airbrush with a stencil or if not definetly freehand with the stencil art/craft stores have that very thin flexible stencil plastic. Goodluck

The crayola markers work great - non-toxic and fine. Sometimes you can find the metallic ones. When we did our Louie purse I hand drew each one on and I was crazy after 3 hours - couldn't get a stencil to work right so I just dove in freehand. Good Luck!!!!
