I always used copper jump rings, and honestly it was whatever I could find at Michael's because I always seemed to run out and need more quickly. You can always order something smaller from Rio Grande or just see what you can find at a craft store. Sorry that is not a super helpful answer! In theory other metals would work fine too, I just always stuck with copper.
What type of jump rings did you use? I am only finding 4.2mm for Copper and that is a little larger than I would like to use! Does it matter what type of metal or are there certain ones that work better than others?
Hi, awesome tutorial! I'm looking for a conductive spray for very small detailed items such as honey bee's. i cannot seem to find anything in the US : ( if not, do you know anything about using an airbrush unit ?Thanks so much,
What causes the round deposits of copper around edges when electroforming? I've attached an example I found on the web.
I've been looking at beautiful electroformed crystal necklaces on Etsy and I'd love love to learn how to electroform (as I'm quite crafty), but have NO idea how to start, where to start, aside for gathering the actual equipement. Is there a manual or book you could suggest to read or any resources online that expand on the subject? Thanks!
Hi! I was wondering what kind of clear lacquer could be used? I have some shells and stones I'd like to electroplate but can't seem to find any lacquers that fit my needs; most seem to be for copper to protect from tarnishing. Could something like that be used?
