shamrock14:  You could dip them in liquid gold paint or just paint them with a brush and liquid paint if you want to preserve the labels.

You could also use gold leaf. They have fake gold leaf now that looks very realistic but isn’t so costly. You will need to add a clear coat protection on top of the gold leaf.

You’d need plenty and they aren’t cheap.

If they’ll be used as chargers, no one will be able to really tell they’re records once the dishes are out, so why not use gold chargers and print out labels like records…fake it?
