In part 2 we will learn more about the science of the procecss and all the variables present in electroforming, learn how to electroform multiple items at once, how to create an affordable set up for larger items, and learn how to finish our pieces into something wearable! We will also touch on topics such as plating.

If you don't want to bring anything we offer a large selection of practice materials for free!
