Do you have any video instructions on electroforming organic
objects. (leaves, flowers, pine cones, etc.)

I don’t have any video instructions, but just did some of these a
few months ago. You do need to make sure that your organic item is
sealed with polyurethane. I dipped my items 2-3 times (over 2-3 days,
allowing dry time between each coat) and then painted on the copper
and put it into the bath. They worked great.

Dana - The electroforming is the last stage in the process and the
piece that you want to electroform should be in it’s final appearance
before doing the plating. If you want a hollow form at the end, you
should have it hollow before it goes into the plating bath.
