Fountain Fill. In the Fountain Fill Dialog box, check
the Custom button under Color blend and arrange the colors
as you see below.

At right, start with Gold, fade to yellow and to white. In the center
add a strip of very dark brown. If you don't find it in the color pallet,
click Others, and find a suitable color. Don't use black. Blending
now to the left, gold, fade to yellow or pale yellow and then back to gold.
If these color blends don't fall where you want them within your lettering,
you may need to do so fine tuning.
