  1. Just used the brass effect gold mixer to match a chrome plastic flush plate to a brushed finished brass shower head. I brushed polished the flush plate after chrome stripping it and then using 10ml K-Gold to 1ml Brass effect mixer the finish matched perfectly. I used a flat platinum electrode at 3 volts.
