If you want it to be metallic gold, why not use real gold?

Gold leaf, I mean.

A little goes a long way. You can seal it with clear varnish or acrylic
and it'll last forever. I've seen the stuff applied to wood, plastic and
even leather with excellent results.

You can get it from jeweler's shops, millimeter thicknesses sandwiched
between vellum and transferable to surfaces the same way you apply decals.
