I am interested in trying my hand at gold plating as a hobby. I want to plate organic objects such as tree leaves or flowers. I have seen it referred to as electroforming. Do you have any knowledge of this process? As a hobby, I don't really want to spend a great deal of money on equipment. The results may not be what I want and I may abandon the idea. What would be an inexpensive way to try this out without having to shell out a lot of cash? If you don't know about any of this, do you have a source who may?

Thanks for any information,
Jerry

I would appreciate to know about gold electroforming (solution, operating condition, the electroforming technology, current density, bath, brighteners, and so on). I need request about it as soon as possible.

Sincerely yours

Dear Sir/Madam:

I would be grateful if anyone can supply any information about how to understand the different carat of gold? Is there any solutions to purchase or to prepare which would tell me the exact carat of the gold jewelry? Thanks in advance. Fatma

On the subject of gold electroforming solutions, there is also one made by Metalor, formerly Engelhard, called Enform 18P. You might like to contact the office in Cinderford Gloucestershire England.

Good luck!

Dear Raja,
which carat are you interested in? If you want 24K, you don't need a special system but only a good electroforming process that can give you a hard deposit, with enough mechanical resistance.
For other carats (14, 18 and 21/22) you need a dedicated machine.
I think Enthone Inc. is a company that can provide you updated technology in this field.
Regards.

Hello,I hope one day to find some company that does service of gold and silver electroforming for hobbyists (preferably in Italy) but before I would like to know if anyone knows the melting points of 18Kt gold electroforms (solidus and liquidus), is it more than 900°C so granulation can be later applied? Thank You
