What’s my secret weapon when it comes to getting the perfect gold finish? You might be surprised to know it’s NOT a spray paint…it’s actually an oil-based product called American Accents that’s made by Rust-oleum. I prefer the Gold Metallic color in a satin finish. Why do I prefer it? It’s fast drying, has a nice flow that hides brush strokes, and dries with a sheen, not a fake, yellow “shine”. And if I touch it up with a bit of dark stain on a rag, it looks like a fairly realistic brass finish. I know what you’re thinking, and no, this is not a sponsored post…I’ve just had really great results with this product and wanted to share! So what’s your go-to choice for a flawless gold finish?

    wow you can use this for lots of stuff. I have a Michael Kors handbag that only cost me about $250 bucks with a gold logo emblem on it that is getting scratched up quite quickly. With some precision planning and some time, I’ll bet I could get the face of it to shine again!
