I am wondering if there is some way to goldplate lead. I use bright acid plating solutions and I take the clean lead and copper strike it, nickel plate it, and then finish it with 24k GP. However, it works on one only, after that the chemical becomes contaminated and won't gold plate anymore. Any info would be appreciated.

I am not understanding why a nickel plated surface should contaminate a gold bath.
