Electric Paint 10ml

$6.99 ex VAT


Paint sensors, cold solder, repair PCBs, or draw a circuit with Electric Paint.

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 or sensors directly onto almost any material around you, including paper, wood, plastic and glass.

The Electric Paint 10ml Tube is perfect for small scale projects where detail is important, or for painting, soldering or repairing small breaks. You will find it in some of our kits where creating a nice small circuit is necessary.

Nontoxic, solvent free and water soluble, Electric Paint 10ml Tubes are great for prototyping, and safe for makers of all ages. Once applied the paint dries quickly at room temperature, and can be removed with soap and water.

Want to make it more intelligent? Try Electric Paint alongside microcontrollers like the Touch Board, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, MaKey MaKey, or LilyPad.

Put this flexible, revolutionary little tube in your toolbox today.

Fix a TV Remote with Electric Paint

We often get asked if Electric Paint can be used to fix key fobs or remote controls. We are happy to say it works great, so don’t throw yours out yet!

Cold Soldering

Electric Paint can be used as both a liquid wire and an adhesive. Use it to attach components to a range of materials. This is a great alternative to the soldering iron when you’re in a hurry, or working with children!

How To Seal Electric Paint

You can protect the connections and sensors you’ve made with different sprays and varnishes. Don’t worry – it will still conduct!


• Dries at room temperature in 10-15 minutes
• Must be fully dry to work
• Easily removable with soap and water
• Seal with acrylic paint or spray varnish
• Can last years if treated properly and kept dry
• Works on: paper, cardboard, wood, plastic, glass, plaster, some rubbers, textiles, etc…
• Connect batteries, LEDs and other components
• Great for attaching components and for PCB repair
• Can be used as a cold solder and wire paint
• Can be used with conductive thread and e-textiles
• Can be painted or sprayed over for protection or multi-layered circuitry
• Surface resistivity approx 55 ohms/square at 50 microns layer thickness

    What are the electrical specifications? Maximal current? Resistance? The comment above of “55 Ohm per square” does not help a lot. Square of what? Wouldn’t the resistance have to be expressed in volume units. E.g. 55 Ohms per cubic mm?

      Thanks for the head’s up Michael! I’ve updated it so it should work now.

    I cant get full conductivity, after drying it has some resistance. and at water stick out from and made open circuit.
    can I make permanent conducting layer

      Hi there,

      I am sorry you are having trouble with the paint. The paint is resistive- at approximately 55 ohms per square. When wet it doesn’t work, as stated on our packaging.

      If you could send us some photos to info@bareconductive.com we would be more than happy to help.
