In this class you will learn the fundamentals of electroforming, and will gain experience applying this knowledge to electroforming on glass and other non-organic materials. We will then progress to electroforming on organic materials such as leaves, acorn caps, twigs and pods, etc. While our materials are processing I'll share some of my pendant techniques using the end of the mandrel, and demonstrate bail techniques as well.
Here are some photos illustrating these techniques.
