Does science have equipment for PVD metal coatings? I’m wanting to make some stuff for the house, and want it to look spiffy.
I’d like to put common household metal finishes (bright brass, nickel, etc.) on a variety of common substrates (steel, plastic, etc.).
I know there are a variety of PVD processes, but the one I figured might be most attainable is one Ben Krasnow from Applied Science demoed involving sputtering in a vacuum chamber.
Also, what’s the largest workpiece that could be coated?
