I'm wondering whether it's possible to get vinyl with metallic gold colour on the adhesive side? Let me explain why on the adhesive side.
I would like to design a kitchen worktop glass backsplash with some Klimt-inspired vector graphics. I would like to combine frosted glass-like look with gold (Klimt was using it regularly in his paintings).
I could design the simple frosted-like effect using such cut vinyl so some parts would have the clear-glass look while others would be frosted. The problem I see here is that backsplash is very close to white wall which could create insufficient contrast between both surfaces.
That's why I was thinking of combining frosted look with gold so in all places where glass should be clear there would be gold and frosted elsewhere.
Because this is kitchen worktop area, the front should only be glass. Everything should be on the back side so one wouldn't be able to damage it in any way shape or form.
As vinyl would be attached to the back of glass all that one sees is the adhesive side of vinyl (unless applied in some unusual way).
The main problem
The main problem that I see is the lack of sufficient contrast between clear and frosted glass due to close proximity between glass backsplash and kitchen wall. If anybody has ever done this before or can test now on a small sheet of glass and using this translucent frosted vinyl I'd be extremely happy to see results against a white painted wall in a form of photographs.
