Enchanted Leaves Cu Electroforming Kit Review — Maker Monologues
Enchanted Leaves has also put out an in-depth tutorial on copper electroforming, what it is, the science behind it, and how to copper electroform your own objects. You can check out their tutorial here.
What I Love
This kit comes with all the bells and whistles! You can have peace of mind knowing you have everything you need to begin copper electroforming. Not only that, this kit is curated and designed by electroforming artists so they know the best materials and supplies to use. Rather than spending hours research and sourcing each individual item, oftentimes from multiple retailers, you can just make a single purchase and have everything dropped off at your doorstep.
What I Don’t Like
One thing I feel this kit could be missing is some 2 part epoxy. Now, this isn’t something you need to begin with, but that depends on what you’re electroforming. I’ve noticed this kit is heavily marketed toward copper electroforming organic materials like acorns, and for that, you absolutely do not need a 2 part epoxy. But if you want to use this kit to electroform crystal jewelry then you’ll certainly be lacking the 2 part epoxy. But at the cost of adding the epoxy, this kit really goes far in terms of having everything you need to start making copper electroformed jewelry and I can’t say that for any other kit on the market.
If you’ve been thinking about getting into copper electroforming I highly recommend this kit. The price is great, they offer tutorials and instruction manuals to help guide you through using the kit. You can’t go wrong with buying this kit, think of it as a Christmas gift to yourself! You’ll be so glad you did!
Don’t forget to pre-order your kit while supplies last, like I said earlier, they sold out of their last run of these kits so don’t say I didn’t warn ya! Be sure to join their mailing list to be notified of new kit releases and more!
