Seems to me silver plating is a better solution. I found a second electroless plating recipe, which, as opposed to the one I posted above, is rub-on, not dip-in.
Add a solution of table salt to a solution of AgNO3 and you have a white silver chloride precipitate.
Silver chloride powder, mixed with some table salt and a binder like kaolin can be used to plate copper. Just rub strongly the humid (almost dry) powder on the clean copper surface and it takes a silver covering. You must rub strongly to obtain a shiny, resistant silver coating.
The chloride can be made also by electrolyzing a piece of silver in a table salt solution.
