Copper paint for plating





2003

I would like to find copper paint too. I would like to chrome plate some plastic and I heard that copper paint could be used to do that . Would anyone know what I am referring to? Thank you ahead of time.

Well, there are conductive paints, and some of them are copper based, Chad. Suppliers would include Acheson Colloids. But there is so much more to chrome plating than simply painting with conductive paint that I don't know where to start; and the plating on plastic process would not start with copper paint anyway. A very brief intro is at www.finishing.com/faqs/organic.shtml
