Inquiry: Does this material work well on shelves and table tops?
Yes, with a recommendation. The feedback from gold paint users is to apply two coats of clearcoat. Clearcoat will protect the gold liquid paint from harsh detergents. And clearcoat makes the surface more slippery.
A truly strange use of gold liquid paint
--for a special pair of boots: At a super hero convention, these boots were first sprayed with a gold paint, resulting in cracking and chips. Not a respectable attire for a super hero. With this gold liquid paint, the coating moves and bends with the super rubber boot. So, if you are a super hero, dress with the best gold paint available!!
