gold


Recommended Posts

the hex number i have for gold is....EFDD61....this is a little too brassy for what i need it for.  there are a couple celebrating their 50th anniversary & i have completed what i want to send them.....but i want to put a fine line of gold around the edge......does anyone have a more realistic gold hex....i have tried to work it out but failed [again].

 

many thanks to all

Try this one - FFD700  or DAA520.

You could always look here -http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Web_colors for an extensive list of all colours.

Also this tutorial http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?/topic/12499-make-some-gold-text/ may help getting a realistic gold frame, just use the tutorial as a rough guide.  :)

Part of the true "gold" color isn't so much its color but its reflectivity, which is impossible to replicate but possible to simulate on the web.  LFC4EVER's tutorial (which Nitenurse79 linked to) gives a pretty good approximation; I'd also recommend looking into some other color options, such as metallic gold (which is discussed here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gold_(color)#Gold_.28metallic_gold.29)

 

The Doctor: There was a goblin, or a trickster, or a warrior... A nameless, terrible thing, soaked in the blood of a billion galaxies. The most feared being in all the cosmos. And nothing could stop it, or hold it, or reason with it. One day it would just drop out of the sky and tear down your world.
Amy: But how did it end up in there?
The Doctor: You know fairy tales. A good wizard tricked it.
River Song: I hate good wizards in fairy tales; they always turn out to be him.

Try selecting the line after picking a gold or yellow color for it and use the metalize plugin.   http://forums.getpaint.net/index.php?showtopic=15386
