CRMT 227 - Introduction to Electroforming

3 credits
Electroforming is the process of electrically depositing (plating) metal onto a non-metallic surface or object. Metal may be built up on non-porous materials such as wax, plastic, Styrofoam, glass, stone, etc. Wax or foam may be removed from electroformed objects to leave a strong, lightweight, self-supporting metal shell. Students work in electroformed copper; assignments are structured to allow students to work in accustomed formats and/or combine electroforming with other materials or processes.

Priority enrollment to Crafts & Multidisciplinary majors.
