I have been making pens with bullet shells and then went on to nickel plating them. After that I tried the same method with copper plating. It didn't work out as well as I had hoped. I decided to go with the original formula using copper acetate and distilled water. Success! Should not have varied from the theme. The pictures don't do them justice but believe me they look like a shiny new penny. I also found out that the copper goes over the grass well but does not go over the nickel at all. Here are the best I could get for pictures. Here are all three. Polished brass, nickel plated, copper plated.
