You might want to look into electric etching with salt solutions. I've not played with it but I think you can etch almost any metal with the right solution and resist.
As mentioned above aqua Regia is a gold etchant

voltage require would be fairly low. around 1 volt or so off the top of my head - but then it's decades since I looked at electropotential tables.
