My Favorite Gold Spray Paints

I get the question alot,  "What's your favorite gold spray paint?"  And while I like to think all spray paints are created equal, I definitely have my 'go-tos" for various projects.  Today I'm talking about my top-three favorites as well as sharing some helpful spray painting tips

Montana Gold by far has the best quality and and coverage of all spray paints I've tried, but I'll be 100% honest with you and say that their gold isn't my #1 favorite.  However, it's perfect for projects when you want a more muted, brassier gold.  I used 'Goldchrome' on this pig figurine, and it perfectly achieved the vintage brass effect I was looking for.  I've also used it on draw pulls and knobs for the same look.  Note that Montana Gold spray paints take a bit longer to completely dry than most paints.  I recommend letting your object sit for at least 24 hours before touching.  

A tried and true favorite that rarely lets me down, Krylon's Metallic spray paint is the perfect shade of gold (even though it says 'brass'!), goes on smoothly and dries quickly. I've used this for both my beloved bar cart, and this darling little peace-sign figurine.  With this paint, I recommend doing two coats, allowing for the first coat to dry completely before applying the second.

I love this spray paint!  It's a much brighter gold than others I've tried, and goes on like a champ.  Like Krylon's other products, it's smooth and has a quicker drying time than most.  I wanted the deer mount in my bedroom to be extra fabulous, so I used this when painting the antlers.
