You and your family have never had this much fun with a nightlight, Christmas window village, party centerpiece, learning-by-doing toy. Another wonderful kit from the folks at Bare Conductive, the Glowing House Set comes with all the parts you need to create two houses that glow when the lights go out.
Easy instructions will walk you through how to construct and light two houses using Bare Conductive's Electric Paint. It's a superb way of introducing children to cold soldering as they draw a "liquid wire" between the batteries and circuit.
No experience with electronics is required to create these houses.
Each kit includes:
- 2 x Pre-cut Paper Houses
- 1 x Electric Paint Pen
- 4 x LEDs
- 2 x Resistors
- 2 x LDRs
- 2 x Transistors
- 2 x Battery Clips
- 2 x 9V Batteries
- Sticky Dots and Stickers (no glue required!)
Electric paint is nontoxic, solvent free and water soluble. It works on traditional electronics, plastic, paper, cardboard even textiles and is compatible with conductive thread, PCBs, microcontrollers such as Arduino, Raspberry Pi and FLORA.
To use the Electric Paint pen, unscrew the lid and nib and remove plug. Gently squeeze the pen to apply the liquid. The paint dries at room temperature in about 5 minutes and becomes conductive once fully dry. It comes off with soap and water.
Bare Conductive have a fantastic website full of ideas and tutorials. We highly recommend it.
