John Park’s Conductive Paint Stencil Mask @adafruit @johnedgarpark

inkminitip_thumb_853

Creating circuits with conductive ink is fun and easy. It’s also a great way to get someone into electronics without using wires. If you’d like to add form to your function and increase the design appeal of your conductive ink circuits, try using a stencil mask. You can go from the simple, such as masking tape, to the more involved — in this case a circuit designed in Rhino to fit the Circuit Playground and laser cut from Mylar.

I’m refining my technique for an upcoming project that’ll require precision conductive paint placement to extend the capacitive pads from a Circuit Playground board.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
