Hi Ken. What you'll find is that there's no such thing as a metallic colour. In real life, some things are just very reflective, which gives them a distinct appearance. If you try to re-create this appearance on a computer screen, by looking for a "metallic colour", you won't be able to do it. When you see a metal in real life, it looks the way it does because it is actually a myriad of different colours. If you want to create this effect in Photoshop, the best way is to use a gradient. Here are some common metals: Silver (light grey to dark grey). Gold: (Yellow to brown).
