Hi, Does anyone on the list have experience of Electrotyping -
the making of reproductions of leaves, plaster mouldings etc by
copper or silver plating onto them?
Ian – Are you sure you don’t mean electroforming? If so, there is
a good article on it in the current issue of AJM. I took a class in
this process several years ago, and found it quite intriguing, altho
at the time it was just not terribly reliable. However, according to
this particular article, changes in technology have made huge
differences in this process and it has – or is-- becoming much more
feasible for production work.
