Wooooah, how did you do that gold effect? That looks so amazing :O

To bring out well the gold you need to play also the colour settings you place it into.
I do use a gold paper texture as base, but to break its generic look I rubber into it with certain grunge and messy brushes so it a bit adopts my background tones and not stick out too much.
If needed I do gradient tool overlay support for shade if needed or brighten parts I feel like it is needed.
Gold not comes out that well with brighter tones though - unless you strictly avoid on the image to use too vivid tones and let only the gold part be vivid and sharp in its tone so it can a bit pop out which more or less reaches the right effect. But fed darker background helps it a lot while the effect itself is super easy to recreate with one single texture. :>
