NEW PRODUCT – Conductive Silver Ink Pen – Standard Tip. Experiment with paper electronics with this silver conductive ink pen that will let you draw traces! We like the make of this pen, it has a nice liquid silver ink that flows easily, and it works great. In just 3 minutes from opening the packaging, we made the image above, a coin cell holder with an LED.
There are two ‘tips’ available – standard and micro. The microtip allows for finer control but is a little harder to use (because it doesn’t deposit as much silver at once). See the image above with a demonstration of the kind of traces you can draw with each of the lines.
