"Electroforming on glass"



2005

We currently electroform onto stainless steel but need to try glass. Can anyone point me to a good reference about how this is done. I know the glass surface must be metallized but I have no idea how this is achieved.

Silver salt reduction (like old mirrors) or palladium and tin salt (presently used for POP plating on plastic).

You should use a conductive paint!

Mr.Peterson,
You can use finely powdered silver mixed in high quality Thinner.Dip,paint or spray the mixture on the glass surface which is clean and dry.Leave the surface for one hour.Plate Acid copper carefully initially with minimum Current and without air agitation and gradually increase current and air agitation.Proceed to electroforming.
