yup- gold flake sheets. Again, try either a hobby store or a stationery store.

He has already bought it and looking for a way to stick it to a model.

It's like a foil so you should be able to wrap it around somewhat. I would also experiment with wetting the model and then applying it to the body, as the water drys it should stick. This stuff is very fragile and will not hold up to much movement by the model. If you are trying to cover a model you would be better served by using gold flakes and painting the model.

oh- dang 41 yr old eyes :) I'd find a makeup artist and ask them. There's got to be some liquid glue- not super glue- that works on a temporary basis. Call an artist's supply store and see what they recommend. You won't be the first to ask the question, I'm sure.

Now that I understand the question, it sure makes my mind wander on future shoot ideas. :)
