  • Newbie help with copper plating jam jar lids

    Hello I am a hobbyist and need help copper plating jam jar lids. Does anyone know what kind of metal they are made from. I have a set of lids which have a silver finish to them. I rubbed them with wire wool to see if it was just a surface finish but it appears not. I am guessing steel or stainless steel?
    I have the same issue with box catches purchased from ebay. They have a zinc finish but am not sure if they are simply steel with a plated zinc finish or some other technique used. I would really appreciate help with the products and processes required to pull this off. I am making a box with copper handle and catches and would like matching jam jar lids etc. Very much appreciated.
