Best Potentiometers and where to use them

Can you use Electric Paint to make a potentiometer?

If you’re interested in understanding more about the fundamentals of potentiometers, one fun idea to try making one of your own. Since our Electric Paint is easy to paint and connect to, it is a useful tool for this sort of exploration.

In fact, we have four tutorials which us our paint as either a potentiometer or a variable resistor – check them out below!
