Gold Metallic Paint
I am painting over gold leaf paint as it has weathered and chipped. Would you recommend that I prime over the gold leaf before painting with the product
You will need to sand the old paint and remove any loose paint. It's always good to use a primer for the best adhesion. Use an oil based primer.

does this product come in gallon cans? price? recommended thinner if required? can this product adhere well to a fiberglass churxch dome?
It only comes in pints and quarts. It is very thin, no thinner required. Should adhere to fiberglass.
what primer do u recommend?
It depends on what it is going on. On metal it would be TotalProtect, on wood you could use our topside primer.
Want to paint a small church dome in southwwsr florida. How will the product hold up to the sun and heat?
I've used this product for decorative painting on exterior door in northern Vermont, very different environment then the one you mention. This paint is very durable, so I'd give it a try. It may be that you'd need to refresh it every 10 years or so due the climate. Try a boat builder in the same area for other recommendations.
I used on trim with indirect sun and also sealed with SIKKENS Cetol Marine Gloss. Seems to be holding very well after 2.5 years. CHECK WITH MANUFACTURE FOR RECOMMENDED APPLICATION INTENSE EXPOSURE TO SUN!
Most of the times that I use Bright Gold Metallic paint is for inside use, like frames or on wood carvings in place of gold leafing. I gave some to a friend owe used it outside in place of gold leaf. This was in the spring of 2015 and it still looks good. I would think that in the Florida sun, Bright Gold would look good for 3 to 6 years.
I did not use this product for exterior weather exposure, therefore, I do not feel my use pattern could honestly answer the above question. However, the product did meet my expectation for my intended purpose.
I'm not sure. I used this paint for some routed lettering to use instead of gold leaf. the customer wanted a less expensive option, so I tried this paint. I live in central New York, so we get all kinds of weather and aside from the fact that this paint is nowhere near as bright as gold leaf, it appears to have held up well so far.
The gold paint worked very well and has held up perfectly I would buy it again

The paint is really just oil based paint so it will only last for a few years outside - maybe 2 or 3 at absolute most in SW Fla. It will have to be repainted often or it will fail because of the sun's UV rays. If you are painting inside it should be good for a long time.
This product appears to be withstanding intense sunlight without losing color.
Sample of gold color, Super bright metallic paint?
I used it to re-do the lettering on a carved sign for our development. It worked very well and was quite metallic.
Yes it's bright and actually looks like gold.
It was super bright gold.
What would you suggest as a clear coat with shine for the Sheffield metallic paint gold? this is on a metal gate, outside full sun.
I have never used a clear coat over the gold. I had stayed a nice shiny gold for over 8 years - it's the best gold to use and we paint all our sign letters with it.
I would agree with Max G. I have used this paint on many different projects and surfaces and it is a great product and covers well. I did however, use it in the greenhouse and it turned green which may have been caused by something in a fertilizer. Don't take chances. Coat it with either a lacquer or clear, high-gloss poly to be safe. The gold is really bronze filings and we all know acid rain can turn that green.
Hi there,i would suggest a gloss polyeurithane. i have had good success with that, although some brands are yellower than others so read reviews. clear enamels tend to be way to goopy and yellow. laquer works well too.good luck,m
I painted the Spears on my metal gate with Sheffield Gold about four years ago and they still have a great luster. It's an outside gate in Tampa Florida. I doubt that clear coating will extend the life of the gold. I would just paint it Gold and be done with it. I have no doubt that the life of the paint alone will pass five years without any significant loss in luster.
can it be used on painted walls in a bathroom?
Can it be used for painting a whole wall?
Sure. It rains on the sign I made using this paint.
Just make sure the surface to be painted is prepped like light sanding to give it "tooth". Also, a clear coat over spray like polyurethane will protect from moisture.
Can I varnish over Sheffield super bright gold metalic paint ? I am lettering on teak wood name plate . Not sure if I apply varnish then letter or letter first then apply marine varnisk after
letter first then varnish
I used this paint on the bootstripe for my boat. After it had cured for a few days, I covered it with 3 coats of clear polyurethane; it still has a shine. Just make sure the paint is dry before varnishing.
Can I use this on a smooth metal table? Do I need to prime first?
I can't help on this question. I put mine on a cast aluminum fence finial after priming it with Rustoleum Rusty Metal Primer.It's still good a number of years later
I paint outdoor lights with no primer.
We did not prime but painted over a powder coated iron fence and sadly the brightness has faded. We sprayed a clear over it to help it keep its luster but it didn't work. Sorry I can't recommend this product unless you plan to re-paint every 3 years.
When painting metal it should be sanded first to remove the gloss then cleaned witgh a solvent, primed then painted if you want it to last.
Is this a latex or oil based paint?
It is an oil based paint. That is one of the things that makes it durable.
A great paint. It performs as advertised.
For painting an outside sign, painting a foam eagle, and redoing some picture frames.

It's gold alright!
Reviewed all the pros and cons of the many gold paints on the market. This one is certainly a keeper. Fast service from the distributor. It is a little pricey, but it also is very good. 105 fluer de lis iron railing finials to cross the 70 foot building parapet.

Covers well but better over darker colors

Fast Service Qualty product

Southern New Hampshire
Great product !!!
I'm sure this is an excellent product, know a sign painter who has it & that was my purpose as I do boat graphics but another review said it in no way is like leaf & I AGREE. If you want leaf this is NOT it. Gold Metallic yes, it's beautiful for that but very disappointed in the lack of leaf simulation.
Jamestown Distributors is Great!
My experiences with Jamestown has been great from the beginning with ordering, product quality, availability and speed of delivery. On the occasion that I needed phone assistance I have been hooked up with the right people and there knowledge has been very helpful.
This gold paint is the BEST of the best!
This outstanding gold paint was used on the church podium, made of wood with very ornate antique-looking designs. I chose this gold paint because I wanted it to be the best, so the podium would never need to be repainted and would last through the years. Even the color of the gold was completely in keeping with the antique quality that was required. The paint was easy to use and went onto the wood without any problems. The finished product is remarkable and brings joy to everyone in church. I am completely satisfied with this gold paint and highly recommend it to anyone painting ornate wooden designs or even the outside of a boat or an outdoor sign. It is a product whose result is visually beautiful and will stand the test of time!
I was re-painted the detail work on an old Singer sewing machine which I am refurbishing. I wanted to use a paint which would not deteriorate quickly (in my experience metallic paints oxidize quickly) and decided to use paint designed for outdoor use. It will be seen in the years to come how good it holds up. You should be prepared to use good quality brushes for this paint. Because I was doing detail, I used a Japanese Calligraphy brush.
Did the job
Used the product to renew gold lettering on outdoor sign.The sign originally had gold leaf which deteriorated and theGold paint went on over it like it wasn't there. Great product!
