Painting the hilt of Shalamayne

My first attempt for painting the hilt was to use a base coat of yellow, then dry brush various shades of gold metallic paint. But that didn't work at all.

Metallic paint doesn't give good coverage, so it ended up a splotchy mess.

I redid the base coat with gold spray paint. It looks pretty good and hopefully I'll be able to add shadows and highlights using acrylic paint over it.
