Americolor has a gold colour, but it won't turn shiny gold, it will just bring it to a yellow colour. Then you will have to paint it with gold powder mixed with alcohol afterwards to make it that pretty gold colour.

I think it also helps to tint the RI first (yellow or grey) and then paint with lustre dust/alcohol.
