Last weekend I began my copper electroforming experiments. Inspired by some pieces I saw at Paxton Gate in SF and an Instructable on electroforming a seed pod I purchased a copper electroforming kit. It is a process that takes patience let me tell you 6-12 hours or more depending on the size of the object. I had a couple of failed attempts but I have successfully electroformed a gingko leaf. I think this is something I am really going to get into and enjoy. I just need to have patience and follow directions. It is a little dangerous working with acid and electricity.
