  • New to Plating

    Hi everyone,


    I'm extremely new to plating and I'm still learning.

    I have a Caswell Plug and Plate kit to plate pewter buttons with a copper finish. I am using Caswell's copper solution and sometimes it comes out pretty good. Other times its spotty. I plated a few buttons last night and now this morning the buttons kept some of the finish, not all. I re plated the finish onto the Pewter button and it looks ok when I'm done, but when I go back to check them, the finish is gone, when it appeared to be ok earlier.

    What am I doing wrong? I use warm solution and it also plates alright when its cold.

    Thanks,

    Ray
