Design, discover, create. Your design and electronics projects are about to change forever. Paint circuits and sensors, or use Electric Paint as a conductive adhesive on almost anything including paper, plastic, textiles and conventional electronics.
Put this flexible, revolutionary little tube in your toolbox today.
It also works with:
The Touch Board, Pi Cap, electrical components, prototyping materials, PCBs, microcontrollers, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, MaKey MaKey and e‐textiles. Why not try using it with the Touch Board or Pi Cap to make touch sensors and switches.
LEVEL: Super Beginner to Expert Engineer
Electric Paint can be used to fix key fobs or remote controls. So don’t throw yours out yet! Just follow our online tutorial to get yours working today.
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.
You can protect and seal the sensors you’ve made with different sprays and varnishes. Don’t worry – it will still conduct!
