I'm looking at the artist Roger Hiorns, particularly his work with Copper Sulphate crystals. See attached images. Here are the questions I have:
Would someone mind guiding me through the process the artist has undergone to achieve such a uniform coating of crystals?
Do I need to prepare the metal I'm using in anyway before submerging in Copper Sulphate solution?
How long would I leave it to crystallise?
I have 2.5 kg of dry Copper Sulphate at the moment, would this be enough to coat a small engine of about 15cm in width?
Thanks in advance for your help.
