Applying Electric Paint with stencils is easy. Whether you’re using an existing stencil or designing your own, the following tutorial will give you a quick demonstration on how to stencil with Electric Paint.
People often ask us whether they can dilute Electric Paint, and the answer is yes! However, there’s some things you need to keep in mind before you do so. Read this tutorial to find out how you can dilute the paint to maintain its performance.
If your remote doesn’t work, Electric Paint is a great and easy way to fix the buttons of your remote control, without needing a soldering iron. Find out how to do it here!
In this post we talk about a few ways to seal the connections and sensors you’ve made with different sprays and varnishes. And don’t worry – it will still conduct!
• Conducts electricity when dry
• Paint, stencil or screen print
• Nontoxic and solvent free
• Water soluble
• Paint over with water‐based paints
• Screen print up to 0.8m2
• 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 conductive thread and e-textiles
• Surface resistivity approx 55 ohms/square at 50 microns layer thickness
