This video shows the steps needed to make a nickel acetate solution (containing nickel 2+ ions) for use in home electroplating baths.
Home electroplating has never been easier! You needn't spend time and money on expensive home plating kits or getting your items professionally plated, when you already have most of what you need in your own home.
In this series of videos I will show you, in a step-by-step approach, how you can electroplate items yourself for a fraction of the cost. For example, I made 3 litres of nickel acetate solution for about £10 which is enough solution to plate a lot of things!
