Gold paint has a multitude of uses in crafting. A touch of gold paint on a piece of wood can make a dull piece look refined. With some burnishing, a gold finish can make a crafted piece look older or antique. Gold paint can tarnish over time, so it’s important to put a finish coat of lacquer over it. For a truly gold look, gilding with gold leaf is more appropriate.
Paint a frame with gold paint to make a scrapbook page, poster, picture or other framed item stand out and appear more regal.
