White Metal is any alloy that is light-colored, and is used especially as a base for plated silverware, ornaments and jewelry. Some of the metals used to create this alloy are antimony, tin, lead, cadmium, bismuth and zinc. Not all of these metals are found in all white metal alloys, but are combined to achieve a desired need, such as being able to be casted and polished.
Velvet is a type of woven tufted fabric in which the cut threads are evenly distributed, with a short dense pile, giving it a distinctive feel. Velvet can be made from either synthetic or natural fibers.
