Apply Gold Plating in very, very light coats. It's essential that some of the black base be visible through the Gold Plating even on the direct view. It cannot be stressed enough how light Gold Plating is applied; too much and the brilliant gold effect is lost.
Be patient! Like any special effect paint let it cure! The gold effect will only get better once cured!
For best results: it should be applied, over high gloss black Smooth finish. The gold plating needs to be applied in light "mist" coats, building up slowly until you should still see the gloss black straight on.
Let it Cure! The gold plating effect will improves as it cures, waiting a few days (48 hours)
