Electoplating wood. CHEMISTRY QUESTIONS! Answered
Hello guys, Thanks alot for reading. I don't know much about chemistry outside of my one high school class. We electroplated a penny.
I have a 1.5ish square-foot piece of wood, and i am wanting to CHROME IT.... chrome paint kits cost hundreds of dollars, and i've before seen chrome-plated wood.. and i want to replicate the results.
I'm looking for a cost effective alternative to expensive chrome kits (+300 dollars for a pint)
In theory.... my method would involve somehow plating the guitar with some sort of metallic based paint, then submerging it in a chrome bath.
[b]IS THIS POSSIBLE??[/b]
Is there a metal chemical that can somehow be applied evenly to the entire surface of the wood? (i.e. paint?)
What, and how much of the specific chemicals do i need, and where can i find them?
I really want this to be mirrored.
Thanks so much for your responses to my problem:P
