Spa Plating's solutions and equipment are proving very popular amongst jewellers and silversmiths because you can gold or silver plate in your own workshop, thus cutting out the need to send any precious pieces off to be tank plated. Our Gold or Silver Pen Plating Kit is ideal for getting started.

Brush plating is ideal for renovating interiors, as the plating can be done 'in-situ'. Bathroom taps or doorhandles can be plated any shade of gold while still attached, saving valuable time on dismantling. Non-metal interior surfaces can also be plated with our Plastic Plating Starter Kit, which opens up a myriad of interior styling possibilities.
