    Really wonderful. I went to price paints today to try this. What brand did you use? And by gold paint, do you mean yellow ochre or metallic? I priced Fine Paints of Europe, which would be prohibitivey expensive for multiple colors. Thanks much for the demonstration!

    Fantastic, I'm going to apply this technique to the neck of my paper mache guitar. Thanks for the tip! :)
