Why does gold work so well? I think it has the ability to add a soft warm glow. It's a rich color but not hard like other metallic colors tend to be. It can make something feel elegantly aged or even cherished.
If you have thought about using gold but weren't sure where to start, paint may be the easiest choice for you. For about a dollar, you can get gold paint at your local craft store. Mix it with a little water and you have homemade gold mist.Other options include: gold pens, tape, tissue paper and stickers.
