    I’m sorry... it is pretty good... and it’s a cool idea.
    ...but the first thing I thought was... “looks like shit” . LoL... seriously, not trying to say he sucks.... but I could make a dope ass play button out of those materials with the tools he had, and I’m considered mediocre skilled when it comes to the people I work around. That’s the only reason I’m saying this... well... that, and cause of the title of the channel and his sub count .

    So you went through all of that shit with the silver and gold because you're either not smart enough to follow directions, or you thought you knew how to do it and so didn't feel the need to read any sort of instructions... How pathetic!

    A cool thing, would be to create a tray of silver for the play button that would complete and house the pieces like a game of trivia, with a spot of silver to fill in the clearglass gap.

    CHAOS GAMING Month ago +1 went through all that trouble to electroplate the copper with silver and gave up and used aluminum instead of just spending $170 and making it solid silver? Not calling you a cheapskate or anything, but it would have been a lot easier to just make it solid silver

    For the gold you should have used nordic gold with
    Tin- 1%= 12 grams
    Zinc- 5%= 61 grams
    Copper- 89%= 1122 grams
    Aluminum-5%= 61 grams
    Using these exact measurements for it

      Glass and silver are made of very different things. You can dissolve silver and gold with what he has because of a certain chemical inside the metal, whereas glass does not have said chemical.
