    I have a rubber-seque bat emblem that I want to apply to a costume. Problem being, I want it in gold. No matter how light a coat I apply it always seems to crack (due to the movement of the costume). So I was thinking that plastikote (which is rubberized paint) would be perfect. I can't seem to find any info on the availability in gold. Does anyone know if it does, or even any solution to my problem?

    Automotive paintshops use a softener / plasticizer to make / keep paints flexible for rubber bumpers, etc. Start your search there. You should be able to add a drop or two of the product to a mix to airbrush the part.

    Plastikote do made Gold (and chrome) paints but dont know how flexible they are. In addition there are certainl chromes available in the UK not the US.

    If the plastikote option fails you could try dry brushing gold paint, building up the layers

    Cheers
