Gold, also called gold, is a color. The gold color of the canvas is sometimes referred to as gold to distinguish it from the metallic gold color. The use of gold as a color term in traditional parlance is most commonly applied to the color “metallic gold” (see below). The first recorded use of gold as a color name in English was in the 1300s to refer to the element gold. The word gold as a color name was first used in the 1400s and 1423 to refer to blonde hair. Metallic gold, as in paint, is often referred to as gold tone or gold tone or gold background when describing a solid gold background. In heraldry, the French word ou is used. In modeling, the golden color differs from brass. A shiny silver or metallic object can be painted transparent yellow to achieve a golden hue, as is often the case with Christmas decorations.
