So, I was recently toying around with a colour scheme for my Space Marines and none of the current ones have really caught my eye, and then I just randomly thought of electrum, or a mix of gold and silver. The problem is that it doesn't agree very well with black, so I was wondering if there was any basecoat you could paint on first to make it seem a bit less "splotchy" before I layer on the rest of the coats?
EDIT: It has also come to my attention that electrum may be harsh on the eyes - is it any good as a colour scheme?

Well it is disgusting looking... If I were that way inclined I'ld try it over boltgun metal and give it a wash of Chaos Black to make it that much less gaudy.
Just paint them pink!
Armory grey spray primer. Or white. Use brown or black ink for shading.
Ooh no! Never use Black Ink! Watered down Chaos Black looks so much better.
You should paint them pink anyway.
Rabbit, would undercoat black, bascoat tim bitz, work through gold to mithril silver, possibly use chestnut ink wash but probably not as would make it more Gold like
Everything you have been told is a lie!
I would probably go with bronze over tin bitz - but either should work well with a gold/silver mix.
When I paint gold I start with a base of bronze, give the bronze a brown ink glaze and highlight up from there (sometimes I will also give it a green, purple, or orange (ink or tamiya clear paint) glaze to add either cold or warmth to the look.
