5 Facts About your Flashing Card Set
Handy tips for making your craft design flash!
Bare Conductive’s Electric Paint is just like any other water-based paint, except that it conducts electricity! This means that you can paint wires directly onto paper. In this kit, easy step-by-step instructions will guide you through drawing a circuit, and attaching LEDs and batteries to a card. Complete the circuits, wait for the paint to dry, and watch your cards come to life!
If the quirky flashing illustrations weren’t enough, these fun facts will make your experience all the more enlightening!
A quick guide to 5 of the many ways you can use Electric Paint
5 great ideas to get you started with your Starter Kit!
Make the most of your Electric Paint 10ml Tube
1. Three Fun Designs
Each of the four kits contains three different illustrations so you can get the most out of this creative activity. This means its perfect for sharing between groups of three, or giving to different people with separate tastes!
2. Learn Circuit Symbols
This kit uses the same symbols that are used by professional engineers to design circuit diagrams. Check out the circuits cleverly concealed in the illustrations and locate where each component should go. You’ll also learn about polarity, and how to recognise which leg of a battery or LED is positive or negative.
3. Cold Solder
Forget about using a soldering iron. Electric Paint allows you to solder components with no heat at all! No more worrying about burning the tabletop or dealing with a bad solder joint, plus its safe for small and unsteady hands. Just squeeze a droplet of paint to the leg of your component and voilà! Wait 15 minutes until the paint is dry and the connection is made.
4. Draw A Circuit
Who said circuits had to be straight lines? With Electric Paint you can get creative with your circuitry. See how these circuits are part of the illustration in the colourful characters in the Celebration Circuits Set. Use your Electric Paint 10ml Tube to draw graphical circuits and hide electronics in your artwork.
5. Hack It
After making these cards you’ll be ready to design your own circuits. Why not hack your cards or make something new? Get a different card from a stationery shop and make it interactive, or make something else flash – could be your notebook, business card or key ring!
