Beyond Plain Electroforming

This is the new direction I'm focusing on -- adding design into the electroformed surface on a bead.46 x 32 x 15 mm

  1. Ooooohhh...very cool! Will you be posting a tutorial on this technique, or are you going to keep this one to yourself? :-)

    Do you have a suggestion for a resist that will stand up to the bath without destroying the surface underneath, while being easy to remove? I haven't been able to come up with anything.

    I've been experimenting with electroforming on my ceramic beads. Regular ^6 glazes work, raku glazes, not so much. I'd love to protect the exposed raku surface without covering it with lacquer.

  2. That is a positively, absolutely exquisite bead!!!
    Kudos to you for your creativity and great execution!!!

    I keep toying with buying an electroforming kit... that may be the bead that pushes me over the edge... (or not as I don't imaging I could come up with anything so stellar and it kmy make me frustrated LOL)

    WONDERFUL WORK!!!!!!!!!!!!

  3. The back of this one is my favorite. I love all the dots and loops and the bird wings unfurled!
