Yariv Ziv’s Conductive Putty

Conductive putty made from Electric Paint, PVA glue and Borax.

“Over the weekend I did a little experiment with the Electric Paint. I mixed it with some PVA glue and Borax. What I got was a kind of Silly-Putty material which was cool. It conducted really well. At first I believed it might have been due to the combination of water and Borax (which is kind of salt). But when I dried it, it still conducted, which must be an effect of the Electric Paint. I thought it was worth sharing!” – Yariv.
