Large scale project with Electric Paint? You’re looking in the right place.
Design, discover, create. Your design and electronics projects are about to change forever. Paint and screen print circuits and sensors, or use as a conductive adhesive on almost anything including paper, plastic, textiles and conventional electronics. For permanent applications, or to create multi-layer circuitry, Electric Paint can be insulated using standard acrylic or water-based paints.
Touch Board, Pi Cap, electrical components, prototyping materials, PCBs, microcontrollers, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, MaKey MaKey and e‐textiles. Use with the Touch Board or Pi Cap to make touch sensors.
LEVEL: Beginner to Expert Engineer
Large Scale Sensors
Non-toxic and water soluble, Electric Paint can be used to paint or print sensors on a wide range of surfaces. These sensors can be used to build sensors into the environment or to create interactive installations. Before using Electric Paint in any large scale project, make sure to read Sensor Design Basic Rules of Thumb for some useful advice.
Sealing Electric Paint
For long term durability, Electric Paint can be sealed, coated or covered with a water-resistant layer such as acrylic or glass. For tips on how to do this you can check out this tutorial by Thomas Evans.
• Conducts electricity when dry
• Paint, stencil or screen print
• Nontoxic and solvent free
• Water soluble
• Paint over with water‐based paints
• Paint, screenprint, stencil, spray on or apply like any other water-based paint
• 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…
• Can be painted or sprayed over for protection or multi-layered circuitry
• Can be used with e-textiles
• Surface resistivity approx 55 ohms/square at 50 microns layer thickness
