How to incorporate Electric Paint into graphics

Find out how to incorporate Electric Paint into graphics

In this tutorial, we are going to demonstrate how to incorporate Electric Paint into graphics. This is a very neat technique to subtly include Electric Paint in your designs and turn them into sensors. Using this method, you can achieve precise traces without the need for screen printing. This is also the method that we use in our Electric Paint Lamp Kit.

Step 1

First, draw two parallel black lines around your interface. In this example, we have used a star as our interface. Also make sure extend the lines to the edge of the paper, this is where you are going to connect your graphic to your board. Then, fill the lines in with Electric Paint.

Step 2

When the paint has dried, connect your board to the paint and turn the board on. Now, when you touch the black lines, you will trigger the sensors of the board! You can use this method with our Touch Board, Pi Cap or Light Up Board.
