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!

So what is conductive paint, you ask?  Well, it’s a multipurpose conductive material which looks and feels similar to paint.  In the image above, a dancer is using it to connect circuits on the walls and floors to compose a song with her dance.

What you need to bring:

  • Creative ideas! The goal is to create great Instructables around great projects!  Your project doesn’t need to involve Bare Conductive Paint, but it can if you’d like!
  • Your own supplies, aside from the paint. Do you want to paint on paper, your favourite dress, dishes, or nun-chucks?  Bring ’em!

What Crashspace + Instructables will provide:

  • Bare Conductive Paint
  • Pizza!
  • Space to work, and the tools available in the shop

    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 and Bare Conductive Paint. Bare Conductive is the company that produces the paint, and Instructables is the company that sent it to us.
