Seek Gold Paint With Real Gold Powder
By Bill Finch
Is anyone aware of a source for paint containing real gold powder?
My grandmother (an artist) had some in the 1940's and I've now used
up her supply. She made it from gold powder and artist's oil base
materials. The painted surfaces look like gold leaf and retain the
gold color throughout time.
Short of that, are there any "good" commercial gold paint substitutes
that retain gold color for a long time? I use these materials for
band organ carvings and trim. I would learn to do gold leaf but the
now-depleted paint has worked so far.
