    Matte gold spray paint?

    you could try plasti dip metalizer, the stuff comes in all kinds of coolers Gold and Silver, Copper Blue, Green, Red, and Violet, and now Green/Blue Chameleon, and Turquoise/Silver Chameleon. i used the gold on a foam sword build you can see it here on the guard and pommel.

    Connie's New Sword - From Steven Universe

    so update, unfortunately the water putty i used cracked in several places after it dried. it must be because of the soft foam i was using gave to much room to bend and move. a real shame even after a second coat i was left with many a hairline crack. this putty is clearly not the right stuff...

    Question: wood filler over plastic, will it make a convincing wood effect?

    yup came out pretty good. most of the handle was crap it bunched up in a lot of places. still the very front of the handle was good and i was already planning to tape it anyway. so the tape hides the sin.
