"Conductive paints for electroforming onto non-metallic items"



 

Dear Gentlemen,

I am interested in electroforming. What I want to know is to apply electroform technique onto the non metallic surfaces. To get the conductive surface what can I do? I know that Silver paints help. What else can we (Cheap way)do to get the conductive surface. I want to apply this technique onto the wax.

With my best regards,

Try Bronze or copper powder using a soft brush to apply.

Dear Murat ,

If you want to make electroforming on WAX then you have to use electroless copper [BECAUSE OF melting point of wax] so my ADVISE IS TO USE CASTING WAX USE PALLADIUM AS ACTIVATOR THEN USE ELECTROLESS COPPER FOR METALLIZING THEN ACIDIC COPPER OR SULPHAMATE NICKEL

THANKS & BEST REGARDS,
