Emulate gold letters in Inkscape


Question

I would like to write with golden letters in Inkscape. I've found the Gold gradient, but no gold texture in the filters.

How can I do that?

gold typically doesn't have texture. I assume you're asking how to make a surface look reflective like Gold. A tutorial on making chrome text (a popular tutorial in a lot of image editing software) should get you there. Just swap the greys of chrome for the yellows of gold:
