**If you don't have the kit, all you need is some conductive paint, battery & LED's. You can make your own drawing and watch it glow!
Step 1: Components
1 x Bare Paint Pen (or any conductive paint to draw a circuit with)
2 x Octopus Badge (or any circuit drawing of your own)
2 x Badge Pins with stick back
2 x Coin Cell Batteries
1 x Blinking LED
1 x Color Change LED
**If you like you can get all these components as a kit from our online shop otherwise feel free to improvise!!
Step 2: Tools
Step 3: Step 1 - Making the holes
Step 4: Step 2 - Inserting the LED
In the photo above you can see the legs of the LED bent back. We do this so that the component is strain relieved. This way if your badge falls off or someone bumps it the LED will stay attached.
Step 5: Step 3 - Attaching your components
Notice that I was careful to make sure they weren't touching in the middle.
Step 6: Step 4 - Attaching the battery
To make sure your components are really stuck to the badge you can put some paint on the back as well. At this point, you can cut the legs of your LED shorter so they don't get caught on your jumper!
