Watch as celebratory characters all come to life in these wonderful little cards. A festive turn on Bare Conductive's range of flashing cards, this kit contains everything you need to draw simple circuits with Electric Paint and attach a flashing LED and battery to your cards.
Easy instructions walk you through how to decorate and light your cards. 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 cards.
Each kit includes:
- 3 x Card Designs (as seen below)
- 1 x Electric Paint Pen
- 3 x LEDs / Light Emitting Diodes
- 3 x Coin Cell Batteries
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.
