Since I started airbrushing Ive been testing some gold paints.
Ive been working on replicating Rustolems gold spray paint. You can check out my gold spray paint post. Rustolems gold is the ‘winner’ for the best gold spray paint for me.

I love these DecoArt metallics. They carry several metallic shades in this line. This paint is thick so I can see it working nicely on a rougher surface and has a nice pigmented color.
Martha Stewart’s gold is nice too but a very yellowish gold.
You can see how yellow gold the left jar below is. I find the soft gold not gold enough, to me its more of a champagne shade.
So of course I mixed them! LOL Mixing them gives a gold shade more like Rustoleums gold. The third jar is the mix.
A dimmer light.
Krylons Brilliant Metallic Gold Leaf interior paint. I found this at Lowes. Its more of a vintage brassy type gold.
This picture below I added a gloss top coat. Its more of a satin type finish so I tested the gloss top coat.
Have you tried any of the DecoArt Metallics? Ive used the rose gold. You can check out my rose gold paint post and my rose gold paint and glitter deer post.
