Gold Smith - Gold Plating Kit

The Gold Smith - Gold Plating Kit is an affordable, high quality kit designed for bench-top brush plating, and fine select gold plating. Hobbyists and artists have never had such an affordable, high quality option available before.

This gold plating kit includes everything needed for fine select pen plating and brush plating 24K gold. The gold solution included can produce a cobalt hardened, 24K - Type 1 & 2, grade C gold deposit.

The Gold Smith will plate onto most properly prepared surfaces (Exceptions are: Aluminum, Zinc, Titanium, Chrome, and Steel alloys).

Check out our New Plating Procedure Chart for details about our products and how to use them. 

To plate onto Steel items see our Universal Plater

To plate onto Chrome items see our Universal Plater Chrome Edition.

Aluminum, Titanium and Zinc cannot be plated onto with any of our kits.  Aluminum and Zinc require an industrial level pre-plating, by a trained professional. Aluminum and Zinc require a special preparation and process that is not suitable for consumer level plating operations.  We do not sell the process or provide support for plating onto Aluminum or Zinc.  Any attempts to plate onto Aluminum or Zinc with our products will not work.  If you have a project that requires plating onto Aluminum or Zinc, we recommend sending the parts to us to be plated by our technicians.  We can provide a variety of plates.  After Aluminum or Zinc is Nickel or Chrome plated by us, it can then be plated with a metal you desire, using our Universal Plater or Jewel Master Series kits.

  • (1) - Gold Smith Plating Console
