I put together this sketchy tutorial on me lunch break - hope it's useful. Also, the light changed during painting (big storm) so apologies for the pics. So... Non-Metallic Metal.

Steel stage 3 - paint the original grey back on around in the direction of where your light source is coming from... I tend to use two o'clock on the clock face…

Steel stage 4 - and the light changed! Add white to your grey and and paint a bar of light to separate the light and dark areas

Gold and steel final stage - edge highlight with 2 or 3 very thin layers of pure white. Also firm up your horizontal light bars with this mix - et voila!
