Where can liquid nickel be purchased
Q. Dear Sirs, I'm in search of purchasing nickel in two forms. Spray can and liquid gallon. I have searched for a few days and can't seem to locate a vendor. Please help. Thanks.Leon Thibodeaux

A. Hello Leon. Nickel is not a paint that can applied by spray or brush or dipping; rather, it is a solid metal that applied by electroplating--which is a more complicated process than painting.
You may want to find a plating shop to do this for you; but if you can get back to us with your actual situation we may be able to offer further help. Plating shops buy nickel-based salts like nickel sulphate, but the nickel they apply to things actually comes from nickel anodes.
