Create a cheery house in the glow of a warm fire with the red LED or an ultra-modern look with the blue LED. Decorate your two houses as you want, and watch as they light up when it gets dark. The kit comes with everything you need to create two houses - even the batteries and instructions are included. Make your glowing village your way.
How do the houses work?
These houses use Bare Conductive electrical paint to complete the circuits inside the house connect the power light and light detector. Conductive, easy to use, water based and non-toxic, this paint is a great way to introduce and play with the ideas of electric conductivity. Conductive paint can be applied to a variety of surfaces other than card such as wood, textiles and some plastics. The paint dries at room temperature, and if you make a mess it can be removed with soap and water. The paint is used to attach the components to the card as well as completing the light activated circuit.
How can conductive paint complete a circuit?
Insulators like wood, card or fabric have very low electrical conductivity, so you cannot use them to carry electricity. However, metals, plasma and water carry electricity well. Conductive paint becomes more conductive when it dries. When dry, the paint has enough electric conductivity to complete a circuit, letting you power the LED. Conductive paint is a great alternative to acid etching, as it can be used without gloves and masks. Bare conductive electrical paint is not suitable for application onto bare skin.
