Real rose electroformed and plated in copper

G.S.P Belle Fleur Copper Electroforming Kit for Jewellery and Crafting

£239.99
SKU: BEL-COP

 

Following the trend for copper jewellery which incorporates natural elements, we have created the G.S.P Belle Fleur Kit, which enables jewellers to electroform small non-conductive elements onto jewellery pieces. Popular choices for electroforming in copper include leaves, stones, twigs, hand-made objects and crystals, to create unique jewellery with a distinctive bohemian twist. Electroformed pieces can be treated with a patina (for a rustic, earthy aesthetic) or lacquered (for a fresh copper look).

Full instructions are included with this kit.

Please note: Liver of Sulphur (for patinas) is not included.

Instruction Manual

Overview of use

Full instructions are included with this kit.

Here is a brief overview of the electroforming in copper process:

Step 1. Assemble your jewellery creation using the provided glue to hold the non-conductive elements in place.

Step 2. If working with an element that you wish to remain visible (such as a stone or crystal), apply liquid latex to the top of the stone before painting the area that you wish to turn copper. If working with an item that you wish to be completely encased in copper, skip this step, and move to step 3.

Step 3. Paint the item in graphite paint. If you have secured a stone, brush the graphite paint in all places that you require solid copper to form so that the stone is held in place. Allow paint to dry.

Step 4. Lower the piece of jewellery into the G.S.P Electroforming Copper and set your plating machine to the correct setting. The jewellery will remain in the solution for 12-24 hours and will require periodic checking.

Step 5. Remove item from the solution, dry the surface and continue to apply either a patina or a lacquer.
