  • copper barrel plating over pewter

    Hi all,

    I have built a small barrel plater to copper plate small 3/4 inch pewter tokens. I am using an acid copper plate solution, but i can't get the copper to stay attached to the token. It just peels off. Any suggestions on how to prep the tokens or anything else that might help?

    Thanks

    Joe

        by the way, the solution is sulfuric acid, not cyanide.
