In this instructable you only need things that any ordinary person has in their house. No more dealing with $100 slime thats only available from a remote island in south africa, just plain, household junk.
Sorry for the bad picture quality, i was using my iPod.
Step 1: Materials
- A file
- The lid of a margarine tub or similar lid
- A small mixing bowl ( Aprox. 1 cup )
- Something to mix with
- Something to be the shaft of your stylus
- Craft glue
- A knife
- A candle
- A drill bit (Preferably with a drill)
Step 2: Get your graphite, make your powder
Once you have a reasonable pile of graphite bits, start shaving them against the file. Make sure the resulting powder gets collected in your margarine lid. your going to need it. Also try not to breathe to much of it... probably bad for you...
Step 4: Prepare your mold
Next pull out the wick if it's in your way, and carefully drill a hole in your candle. The hole should be as deep as you want the capacitive part of the stylus to be, then 3/4 of a centimetre deeper. The hole I made was about 3 cm deep. The width of the hole should be a few millimetres wider than what you are using as the shaft go your stylus.
