This Gold Brush Plating kit is best for one stage plating jobs, for example plating gold straight onto stainless steel.

Things made of stainless steel could include medical instruments, interior furniture and audio equipment (for example stage gear).

This kit would also be suitable for gold plating items made of EPNS, for example trays or large dishes.

As well as this, the kit can be used to gold plate on silver, for example hand raised silver vessels, large belt buckles or photo frames.


Our kits are fully customisable so if your job needs something different just use kit list as a guide and swap in/out the items you require.

To help you decide, please refer to the following Spa Plating guides  and calculators;

Pre-treatment stages for gold and silver plating

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.

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.

Silver plating small antiques with the Gold Brush Plating Budget Kit. See here how it’s done in our electroplating manual.

One of the most important considerations for successful electroplating is surface preparation and chief amongst this is achieving a water-break-free surface. For practical tips on this, please see our guide Surface preparation for electroplating – achieving a water break free surface.

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.

Nickel and its alloys Gold Flash Copper,carbon
White palladium 3v Decorative finish on white gold jewellery instead of more expensive rhodium or platinum. Also plated on to silver jewellery to reduce tarnishing and scratching.

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.

Kind regards
