ok, its called gold leaf. its not extremely cheap but the effect and longevity of it makes up for it.

here is gold leaf boat lettering

gold leaf IS REAL GOLD, thought very thin gold. as you know gold is unsanely maleable, and can be hammered to micron thickness. Most of it has texture on it. if you picture it, the fine texture adds alot to it, as pure even gold looks fake, while textured gold leaf vinyl looks like genuine gold (which it is)

here is another picture
that is zoomed in keep in mind.

more samples of gold leaf (including untextured)

here is a description of how it would be used by you
this also includes australian prices for gold leaf and dutch gold leaf (which is fake)
if you can afford it go for gold leaf (maybe $50 worth)
if you cant afford it go for dutch gold leaf, which is fake ($5 for same quantity) but doesnt last as long (3-4years as opposed to forever).
