Hello, Muhammad. Start with these two things: make contact with a supplier of proprietary precious metal plating solutions, and acquire a couple of electroplating books from our list of "must-haves". After you have acquired the plating skills and are making good products, you will easily understand why you should buy proprietary products, and you will lose interest in making your own plating salts.
