Bought mr hobby GX111 clear gold couple months back. Was curious about the result of that paint, therefore i decided to test out and compare with different gold color on black and white base. Here i use gunblade pearl powder + clear coat, mr color gold, mr color GX111 clear gold and gaia 122 starbright gold. Masked half of the spoon and spray gaia ultimate black (glossy) on it, take off the mask then spray different gold colors.
Gold pearl powder
Black base: The pearl pigments/flakes is obviously shown under black paints.
White base: Pearl effect can be seen under light, but hard to capture by camera. Very subtle yet interesting effect, i used on Optimus repaint as well, http://www.beckycustomizer.com/tf/repaint-takara-mp1-convoy-optimus-prime-part-2/
EX111 clear gold
Black base: The clear gold is make out of semi transparent flakes, the black color is obviously seen.
White base: Look like clear yellow but glittering.
gaia 122 starbright gold (Gaia got the finest flakes among these paints.)
Black base: Deep gold color, with better reflection.
White base: Paler gold compare to black base.
mr. color 9 gold
Black base: Darker gold. Rough pigments become obvious under dark base.
Still finding the better usage of the clear gold, i won’t be using it to achieve gold effect. Star Bright Gold will be my option to achieve nice and bright gold, and i actually had complete a kits with that color, http://www.beckycustomizer.com/completed-works-gallery/#385
As for the mr. color gold, i used it on Iron Man repaint, http://www.beckycustomizer.com/completed-works-gallery/#1221
