Absolutely great product
Gold effect? Absolutely! I can't understand what the other two reviewers before me did to their painting projects to get such a bad result, maybe they didn't mix the paint properly? Anyway, I can assure anyone reading this that there is absolutely nothing wrong with this gold paint. It appears as true shiny gold. I applied it to my high ceiling trims and it turned out awesome. As good as the gold used on painted surfaces in Versailles palace, and that's saying something big. Yes it had to be thoroughly mixed, to get the gold ingredients through...it. Took me an hour to mix using a wooden spoon. But when that was done the paint was immaculate. Three coats over white surfaced trims and the effect was as rich a gold as you'll ever find on any surface. The wow factor was there! All I can say is it passed with flying colours, excuse the pun...

Waste of money and time :(
At $79.90- from Bunnings, for 500ml ! I'm afraid I found this a complete waste of time and money, most angles it is seen from , particularly if you are doing a straight brush finish, looks orange or yellow, not gold, unless your lucky and the light catches it at the correct angle ! Also very thin ? or the composition is such, that you will need to go over and over and over again to get any kind of solid colour ! you can roller it several times to get a thicker coat, but then you get a rollered texture , beneath any fancy brush or sponge finish ...over ! I ended up adding a spot of black aqua enamel to improve the colour and doing a cross brush stroke to hide the thin layer of paint . I would have been better off Perhaps, with the Dulux Metallic design tinted paint ? or looking into it more really and purchasing the Porter's Paints version of the Gold perhaps which i assumed would be more expensive ? The Porter's Liquid Vintage Gold Alchemy ! may be a similar composition ? But it's available in store or online, it's a better vintage gold rather than so yellow/orange and would you believe it's Cheaper !! $59.22 for the comparative 500ml !! That's $20.58 Cheaper !! That's dinner ! who'd have thought it ?

5 coats later...
I wanted an even, luxurious finish that stood above a $5 can of gold spray paint. I should have gone with the spray can. At $80 a pop for 500ml and $130 for a litre, i expected the finish that accentuated the quality of the paint constituents. If only the paint flow was a little better!
No matter what i did, or i how i applied it, it always left a textured and finish. It found it difficult to get a finish whereby i could look at it from different angles, and not notice lighter and darker patches.
If you're looking for an ultra uniform fin...
