Paint Paris Gray over gold frames and let them dry really good. Sand them with a wet rag and then use a coat of clear wax and then a coat of dark wax. The trick is to take off the dark wax with clear wax which makes a beautiful finish. After coating the dark wax really good, take an old t shirt and dab some clear wax on it, rub over the dark wax, taking off all the excess. The result is amazing.
