Really cool project! The conductive paint looks amazing and so intriguing. Now I’m going to go down a rabbit hole and look into what can be done with it
Excellent concept and execution! I’ve got a pen of that stuff in an LED lighting kit I got awhile ago but never did much with it.
Product name or link, please ?
The only current supplier I can find right now is Amazon. https://www.amazon.com/AG-MS-01-AgIC-Circuit-Marker-Set/dp/B00N9LGMJU
I bought mine directly from the manufacturer for less money, but they are not supplying it any more. There are probably other manufacturers though, maybe the OP can direct you.
Would you name the ink you used, please, or a link to a supplier ?
I went to her YouTube video and she links to her Instructable which links to the paint on Amazon.
I looked into being a supplier for a similar product(electro luminous paint), It would have been a 20K training to learn how to apply it and become a re-saler. I didn’t pursue it. That was about 8 years ago.
Edit: Oops, should have watched it first That had nothing to do with ELP
There are a few conductive ink products now. Bareconductive sells their paint in pots and pens directly ( https://www.bareconductive.com/shop/electric-paint-50ml/ ). I think SparkFun and DigiKey carry it, too.
I had some, used it in a test, found the whole pot dried out when I went to use it a couple months later.
There is also a paint pen from CircuitWorks ( https://www.chemtronics.com/circuitworks-conductive-pen ). I have one but, have never tried it.
CircuitScribe makes conductive gel rollerball pens ( https://www.circuitscribe.com ). I have messed with those enough to answer questions. That will work on paper and wood, probably not on acrylic.
Ya it’s Bare Conductive paint they sell it in a jar and pen/tube. I find the one in the tube is easier to use for projects like this.
My experience is you can just add water and stir the stuff in the pot. Not as good as fresh, but it never is.
For some LEDs, you don’t have to worry about interrupting your paint, because the LED conducts so much better.
Thanks. It dried into a solid puck. So, I tossed it already. I will keep that in mind if I ever try it for anything again. Also likely to add some additional airtight containment.
That’s a detail that I think might pass by a lot of people, and I think it worth repeating.
It would also make some very interesting LED lamp designs.
Working on it… !
