[color=ffff75]I don't understand the question....

If you want the colors Brown and Gold, then you just get them. :shrug As for glitter...can you post an example? Do you want animated or non-animated?[/color]

Well, if you're referring to coloring, then I think I can give you a few suggestions based upon my knowledge. Probably the easiest way I know to create those types of colors, is merely playing around with your color curves (located under colors). Just merely moved the line to various places on the line to edit the colors to your liking. For a yellow/Gold curve try click on the blue heading, on the drop menu for curves, and move the points below where the line is currently located (as yellow is the opposite of blue). For browns which are probably more complex, you'll probably have to play with all your greens, blues, and reds to achieve the balance you desire.

Other methods of coloring include downloading gradients from various websites (deviant art has a good collection), and making a copy of your image, and then using gradient map. But that method is far more complicated than the one I listed above it.
