Nontoxic, solvent free and water soluble, Electric Paint is a great prototyping tool, and works on paper, plastic, textiles, wood, plaster, glass, and most other surfaces. Once applied the paint dries quickly at room temperature, and can be removed with soap and water.

Electric Paint can be used like any other water-based paint, which makes it great for applications involving painting, screen printing, stencilling, or even as watercolour.

For permanent applications, or to create multi-layer circuitry, Electric Paint can be insulated using standard acrylic or water-based paints. Want to make it more intelligent? Use it alongside microcontrollers like the Touch Board, Arduino, Raspberry Pi, MaKey MaKey, or LilyPad.

Put this flexible, revolutionary material in your toolbox today!
