the triangles are gold vinyl. the rest has about 15 or more coats of clear from an art supply store over gloss krylon colors.

yes, and that would take a great deal of money far exceeding any gloss in a rattle can or HVLP gun.

id rather spend the 10-30 bucks on good gloss than several hundred to cast it.

It don't need to cost that much....
I would make a mold of it from plasterbandages and then use the resin and fiberglass you can buy from a car store.
