Instructables Build Night: Bare Conductive Paint

The fine folks at Instructables are pairing up with Crashspace on Tuesday, May 14th, from 7pm – midnight for our first Instructables Build Night!

We’ll be hosting this event in place of our normal monthly public meeting, which means that all are welcome to come and experiment!  The theme this month is conductive paint.  Arrive early–space will run out fast!

    I found the paint difficult to work with – the tubes impossible & the jar messy. I already purchased a (not yet opened) tube, but now may take it back. For my purposes it’s hard to see how it would be better than copper tape or plain wire.

    Hey Susan,

    Your feedback would be best directed at Instructables.com and Bare Conductive Paint. Bare Conductive is the company that produces the paint, and Instructables is the company that sent it to us.
