Patinas no more! Electroplating for stained glass



(-----) 2007

Hello Neighbor,
My name is Jeff W. I also reside in the "Garden State" Long Branch, NJ. that is.
I am a glass artist and Union glaizer. My question pertains to electroplating on zinc, lead and soder for stained glass. Patinas or natural oxidation is normaly used on these surfaces, but lately I have been seeing glass work coming from Mexico, Florida and California that has electroplating (Chrome, Gun metal copper etc.) done on the metals I have mentioned. I am very interested in how I can learn and do metal plating myself, the state guidlines, regulations and safety issues and the equipment needed to get started.

Thank you for any Info,

Jeffrey Walmsley

"Electroplating and Electroforming for Artists and Craftsmen" [affil. link to book on Amazon] by Lee Scott Newman is very good book on that subject (try Amazon or Abe books). Hope it helps and good luck!
