  • Electroplating copper onto pewter

    Ive been way too many years out of school chemistry (45 or so) Can I use Copper Sulphate Pentahydrate to make my saturated solution in water. This seems to be the most ecconomical and easy to get here in the UK As in the title of the post I want to plate on pewter as the base metal. The finish of the pewter is very good, achieved by brushing with fine brass brush and further cleaned with dry loose cotton wheel at high speed. Please try to keep any answers in plain language I am no scientist.
