Our conductive paint is easy to use on a variety of projects
Bare Conductive’s Electric Paint is just like any other water-based paint, except that it conducts electricity! Electrical conductivity means that you can paint wires or sensors onto almost any material around you, including paper, wood, plastic, and glass.
Don’t know where to begin? Here are some quick ideas on what you can do with Electric Paint.
We love it when you share your projects! Post your project on Instagram, YouTube, or Twitter, and make sure to tag @bareconductive or use #bareconductive. You can also send your videos and photos to firstname.lastname@example.org so we can post them on our site for the world to see.
You will need:
- 1 x Electric Paint 10ml
- Project ideas!
Draw A Circuit
Use an Electric Paint Tube to draw circuitry on almost any surface. Squeeze the tube gently to dispense a thin bead of paint. Leave for 15 minutes to dry and start testing. Remember that what you create doesn’t need to look like a traditional circuit diagram. With Electric Paint, you can produce circuits that are both functional and look cool!
The Electric Paint Tube is perfect for making solder joints or repairs in a variety of scenarios. Whether you’re attaching a through-hole component like an LED to a circuit board, teaching electronics without soldering irons, or securing components to a heat-sensitive substrate, Electric Paint acts as an effective conductive adhesive. Plus, it is safe for small hands!
Repair Small Devices
The Electric Paint Tube can be used to repair small breaks in circuits on window defoggers, membrane switches, and PCBs. The viscous nature of the material makes it easy to apply and manipulate. Its adhesive properties mean that it will stick to the surface and provide a lasting repair. Ensure any repair from excess moisture, and your device will be back up and running.
E-textiles present some great applications for Electric Paint. Use the tube to terminate conductive thread and connect it to a microcontroller. Electric Paint works well on most fabrics, natural and synthetic, but it is water-based, meaning it will come out in the wash. Whether you’re making a talking cushion or an interactive finger puppet, Electric Paint will be a great addition to your e-textile project.
Use In The Classroom
Electric Paint is non-toxic and easy to use, making it perfect for a workshop or the classroom. The tube is a great tool to demonstrate how basic circuits work while adding a creative twist to a science lesson. This unique material allows students to bring their circuits to life through visual customization and building a new circuit.
