EXERCISE:  Challenging your knowledge and application of gold. 

You can use gold on many different materials and surfaces from a golden helm to the stitching of a golden fleece. The trick is knowing how to accurately create the appearance of gold. Gold itself is a metal material. A metal surface will most often reflect light rather than absorbing it. We created a reference last year that give you a quick look at one way of creating the “golden” look.

Thank you so much for sharing! Creating gold effects is really one of the hardest things to do, so it will be very helpful. :)

Wow...not only gold in general, but creating different effects like polished gold and faded gold! This will be extremely helpful! Thank you!
