PRLog - Jan. 25, 2014 - VISALIA, Calif. -- The review demonstrates refinishing antique candlestick holders while showing how to easily apply a luxurious two-tone gold/nickel finish cost effectively and in an environmentally safe manner. Dalmar Manufacturing Co. pioneered the use of room temperature electroplating chemicals and the elimination of cyanide which led to a much safer workplace.
The products performed flawlessly and the two-tone gold with bright nickel finishes applied in this instructional review accurately represent the original artists intended look, feel and texture. The article describes plating the candlestick holder die-cast zinc bases in bright nickel while the brass stems are plated in 24 karat gold.
