Our Brush-on Lacquer (water based) is ideal for sealing porous items before electroforming with our Copper Electroforming Kit.

It also acts as a good bonding layer for our water-based Conductive Ink (hi-grade), when brush plating onto wood.

This is a good choice for items that are too big to dip in our Dipping Lacquer.

Please click on the Examples tab for an outline of the stages in brush plating on wood and the Video tab to see how the brush-on lacquer is applied.

Here is a piece of tree bark that is going to be brush plated.

In order to do this, it needs to be completely dry and so it has been left at room temperature for a few weeks.

It can then be safely lacquered with our Brush-on Lacquer.

Once the lacquer has been applied it should be left to dry at room temperature for 12 hours.

The next step is to make the surface of the bark conductive by spraying on our Conductive Ink (hi-grade)

It can then be brush plated with our PP Copper Brush Plating Solution.

Here is a short video showing how the Brush-on Lacquer is applied;
