    So how thicker can the copper get? What happens if you leave it in the solution for a whole day?

    Can you electroform the bottom 1/4 or so of a resin bowl/object? That could look pretty neat especially if it's polished up before it's 'floated' on the solution. No idea if it would work, so I'm just asking if the idea would work.

    Try taking it out before it's fully done, and you could have a really cool half and half situation

    Electro form a pair of boots or make a golden snitch. Also, I recently copper leafed the inside of a metallic lampshade and it looks really cool. You could totally protect the outer side of a shade and copper plate/form the inside of one.

    are you able to reuse the solution you put it in or do you have to buy a new bottle every time you make one?

    The timelapse sounded like something out of a documentary.

    Now that there is a good foundation of copper, can you plate chrome?

    could you use a wax carving then after plating, melt out the wax? I expect it would be fragile but could maybe be submerged in epoxy.

    If you printed a piece with PVA. Painted it and then plated it. Then plate it in an ice bath or at least cold water. Clean it with an ultrasonic hot water bath. You could make hollow projects. The PVA dissolves in hot water. You would have to make the copper a lot thicker.

    Tears rolling down my face. You should be the next David Attenborough. You should narrate a video with the same music and live birds. That was so awesome.

    Can you reuse the blue liquid if so how many times can you use it and after so many times do you have to leave the product in longer

    Can the copper rub off over time?
