What to do? What to do?
Latest obsession: Electroplating…
Thing 1 was showing off our home grown crystals at school today, they had been making copper sulphate crystals. This got us talking and we got extited about copper plating stuff.
Checking out this video, it looks simple enough; we have copper sulphate, so all we need is a length of copper pipe…
Nickel plating with guitar strings and vinegar? Ok then.
And we want to plate some lego, so we will need some conductive paint, and it looks like we can make our own by mixing acrylic paint with graphite powder. Thing 2 has a large collection of shells from holidays, so maybe we will also copper and nickel plate these.
And perhaps I can finally get round to electro plating some 3d-printed jewelery… Copper Raven anyone?
