Electroforming.

Postby timber_wolf899 » Sun Feb 27, 2011 3:09 am

Fellow castlers;

I'm a huge chromebricks fan; however, I'm getting tired of the high shipping costs an dlimited colors and selection. Could any of you out there who do your own electroforming/electro plating give me some pointers on getting started with this?

1. How difficult is it?
2. What items do i need?
3. How expensive is this? <I saw a large kit for 1600.00 but that seemed more for someone who wants to start a business.>
4. How hazardous is it, chemically speaking?
Thanks
Domino Gloria!

Don't forget that if you cover your bricks with anything semi-thick they won't snap into place as nice.
