You're absolutely right. I'll get some samples done myself and test it, so I'll be satisfied with the end result.

Thanks @TunaMaxx. I'm wondering whether you have the ability to test frosted vinyl with cutouts on a piece of glass (of i.e. A4/Legal) size and put it against a white wall and take a photo of it?

I thought metallic vinyl would be thinner due to material used. AD#1: Can you provide some internet link to this kind of print mount, because I'm not sure I understand the process? But to add to AD#2 I suppose this would be the best possible alternative as one could use thinnest possible glass on the backside (or even Vivak) to lessen 3D effect and completely remove halo. But My metallic vinyl idea arose mainly because of the contrast hesitation I have. Can you please re-read my edited question and see if you have any additional input to your already valuable answer?

Can you please re-read my almost completely rephrased question and add anything to your already valuable answer? I may completely ditch the metallic vinyl idea if contrast can be sufficient - see my main problem.

The idea of cutting metallic first and put an uncut frosted vinyl over is a very good one. Except for the halo, you're mentioning it. The thinner the metallic vinyl the lesser the halo. AD#1: I'm not sure how'd you apply the clear adhesive to metallic and cut it afterwards? The paper on the backside makes cutting possible, as it serves as a fixed platform on which vinyl gets cut. AD#2 That's a clever idea, although these sheets of glass wouldn't be bound. I'm not sure whether that'd be an issue. This would also make an undesired 3D effect because of the distance between vinyls.

Your image of a window with cut Oracal is exactly what I'm after. But. All you can see is the frosted glass where Oracal is being applied and clear glass where is't being cut out. This works very well on windows. I'm sceptical about the effect on kitchen worktop backsplash, because glass will be very close to white wall and I'm afraid that the clear glass parts won't have enough contrast with frosted parts. That's why I would like to put metallic gold in place where clear glass should be seen and frosted everywhere else.
