It was also easier to mix with the silicone!

Conductive Silicone 0.2

Based on the comment from Stephanie S on Google+, I have tried to work on another experiment with Graphite Powder.

So here was what I did:

During the mixing, there were some bubbles of “industrial” colour appeared… But the graphite powder are easier to mix with silicone in general (compared with the electrical paint)

So the result was… graphite powder + silicone = zero conductivity…

Conductive Silicone 0.1

As The Brush 0.2 suggested, I will be conducting experiments to work on a conductive silicone for any shape that I would like to create. With the recommendation by Martin Debie, a part-time faculty at Parsons Paris, to use Encapso K (a clear silicone) to mix with Bare Conductive (an electric paint).

The Brush 0.2

After the first prototype of The Brush, I have redesigned it so that the case would be conductive (steel, aluminium, etc.) with a paper cover on top of it. The paper cover will have a few circular holes to indicate where users should put their fingers when holding a Chinese brush.

The proper way to hold a Chinese brush:
