ELECTROFORMING

Electroforming is a plating process in which metal ions in a solution are moved by an electric field to coat an electrode. The process uses electrical current to reduce cations of a desired material from a solution and coat a conductive object with a thin layer of the material, such as a metal.

Images below are done based on organic plants, in the class we will use Crystals and stones.
