    I would suggest this is a very bad idea.

    What a strange question. Silver, even in very small doses, is a poison to humans and other life on Earth.

    Of course, metallic silver on the surface of serving dishes isn't exactly a new concept. I don't know why a person would ask this question, exactly, but I don't see that it's vacuous: Is the metallic silver in a print more subject to being transferred than the metallic silver in a silver fork or teapot?

    The lady of the house has to be a pretty swell sort of person to put up with the annoyance of a photographer.

    I would suggest that a silver coating on paper is a bit different to a solid silver cutlery or electroplating.

    Yes, and aside of any toxicity of fine dispersed metallic silver: with that dish you got water and heat, both detrimental to gelatin surfaces in first instance.

    My issue is like silver coated paper plates made with silver+plastic
    I don't know of such. Typically you nowadays got plastic foils aluminized by vapour deposition or paper on which a ultra-thin alumium foil has been laminated.

    An ancient recipe from an archaeologist , if you serve wine in silver coated paper , no headache at the morning. Thats why British and Americans may be others made tankards out of silver.

    I can't imagine someone can make disposable plates at price point those things sell and still manage to use real silver. Assuming this is the case, then a real question is, what is the silvery stuff that's on the plate OP is talking about.

    Also, "plastic" is such a generic term. People have been talking about plastic plates and containers being harmful for many years, yet so few references to exactly what plastic they are talking about....

    He is probably just wanting to know if he can use the normal aluminium containers used by fast food outlets. I wonder if he is the same guy here: http://in.answers.yahoo.com/question...3090710AAU6jYr
