Sm, For spackeling you can use Elmers acrylic window glaze , water clean up , easy to work with ,available Wal-Marts or Hardware stores.This will adhere better. For gold paint " 24karet " spray also locally available is a good choice. My favorite is "Pilot" brand med, or wide felt tipped ink pen in gold. Its nice because of color , ease of use and unlike the spray gold paint which has to be cleaned with Lacquer thinner, any ink goofs can be cleaned using standard mineral spirts which should'nt harm the old area. Other brands of gold ink pens may be O.K. but get a wide or med.tip the narrow tip is usless. If the old gold has dark streaks in it you might try rubbing some black and white newspaper over the dry area to impart a hint of black stain.Good Luck!
