Plating baby shoes and other things with silver, copper or gold

In a complex electroforming process, it is possible to provide non-metals with a stable metal coating. Below in the picture you can see some examples. But everything is possible: the rose from the bridal bouquet for a silver wedding or golden wedding. The tennis ball as a reminder of the match won or as the winner prize. The first pacifier as a gift for the 18th for the parents?

Let your imagination run wild for an individual gift ....
If you want to give away this service, I also issue vouchers, which the recipient can redeem by sending the corresponding item. For example, for the silvering of the first shoe as a gift for baptism. Talk to me ...

 





The polished, coppered or silvered objects are patinated (blackened) in the recesses. This only affects the areas in the depth, which are not accessible during polishing and later can not be cleaned. The natural start-up process, which is unavoidable with silver and copper, is thereby anticipated. The gilded objects remain bright everywhere. Silver-plated or copper-plated shoes or similar. are blackened inside, gold-plated inside with gold bronze, since cavities can only be coated to a certain depth

The items can also be delivered mounted on pedestal, to which in turn engraving plates can be attached. Please ask for a separate offer. The coppered and silvered items are not painted against tarnish, as must be cleaned from time to time. Expect about 3 weeks delivery time after receipt of the items with me. For the shipping I charge you Euro 7, -.

How it works:
First, absorbent or brittle articles are stabilized, i. impregnated with wax or synthetic resin to create a non-porous, stable surface. Next, the surface is provided with a conductive coating (e.g., conductive ink). Thereafter, a thick, stable copper layer is applied in the galvanic bath in a lengthy process, which is polishable. Then the contact wires can be removed, the contact points are serged and polished. Then the silvering or gilding followed by a finish. (Patinieren & last polish)
