  • Newbie With Question

    Hi there, Been reading this post about the difficulties with pot metal. I am an artist experimenting with electroforming natural elements.
    Being a newbie, I am obligated to ask at least one stupid question, right? Just wondering why pot metal parts can't just be treated
    like any other non metal item and coated with conductive paint such as graphite and then plated. Joyce

    Plating onto conductive paint is harder than plating onto pot metal, so you'd be taking a step backwards.

      So. plating plastic using conductive paints is actually harder than plating pot metal that has been paint with conductive paint?
