Two tone plating on silver


#1

Hello,

I was looking for some help. I would like to 2-tone plate some
sterling silver rings with 18k. Will nail polish work as a plating
stop-out or Masking Lacquer with cyanide-based plating baths? If
not, what will?

Thanks
Dan

Dan- I use nail polish. have for decades. Only one occasional issue.
When I use gold plating solution it needs to be hot. About 120F.
Sometimes the nail polish will lift off with the hot solution so I
take down the temp a little.

Have fun and make lots of jewelry.

Nail polish will work but let it dry for 24 hours first.
