Gold leaf

It might sound anachronistic but gold leaf is still used in signage, despite requiring specialist skills to apply the delicate leafs of gold to the material it is to cover. However, the quality of gold far out shines the drawbacks of applying it. Gold will never tarnish or discolour so it is as useful as it has always been for creating opulent, glimmering effects.
