It is my understanding that it was actually painted using gold-leaf

The present Capitol took eight years to complete at a cost of just under $10 million.
The entire dome is gilded in 23 ½ karat gold leaf applied to the copper and lead roof in tiny 3 3/8 inch squares.

and, during the war, it was painted green for its protection....since then
it has been restored to the original gold and in my photo, it has been
higlighted with the contrasting color.....here's a couple more you may
like....

Here's Google Images by others of our state capitol....

I'm questioning it now.
Went to Home Depot today. Stopped to get a guy unstuck and my 4x4 got stuck. Next guy through in a jeep hooked me up and pulled me out.

Looks cool though.
