At the heart of the Gold Brush Plating Kit is the EasyPlater, a power source that we at Spa Plating have designed and built in-house. It is very straightforward to use, compact and lightweight and we have designed it specifically for our brush and pen plating process.
Gold plating a stainless steel mobile phone cover with our gold brush plating budget kit. To find out more about gold brush plating, please see our manual HERE for guidance. This kit (or any of our other kits, equipment or solutions) is not suitable for plating on to aluminium or titanium and therefore can’t be used to plate iPhones and other similar products.
Cleanliness apart, whether the surface you’re plating on is matt or shiny is also something to consider. If the surface is matt then your plated layer will also be matt; no amount of brush plating will turn it shiny. So if you want a shiny plated layer you will need to ensure the surface you start out with is shiny.
NB If you want to achieve a vermeil standard layer of plated gold over large areas then you will need to gold tank plate with our Gold Tank Plating Kit.

Gold brush plating on textured silver

Decorative finish on many items for example sculpture. Functional applications for example building up a thick layer to fill in scratches on printing machinery or scratches on decorative items (eg. silver plated antiques) for polishing back and subsequent silver plating.
Decorative finish on white gold jewellery instead of more expensive rhodium or platinum. Also plated on to silver jewellery to reduce tarnishing and scratching. Used as hypoallergenic replacement for nickel. Makes a good barrier layer when plating gold on to copper.
Decorative finish on bathroom furniture. Used to re-plate white gold wedding rings. Should not be used on exterior fittings as brush plating alone provides minimum protection from the external environment.

I have a saxophone that requires re-plating of the silver finish. Do you offer a brush kit suitable for this project?
Thank you for your enquiry.
If the silver finish is only worn in a few places, then you could touch it up with the Budget Kit, but it sounds like it needs complete re-plating by immersion in a silver plating bath.
It may therefore be the best idea to take it to a professional electroplating shop for silver plating.
