Picture of Make an Electric Octopus Badge!
This tutorial will show you how to assemble a Badge Kit. The Badge Kit is unique in that it uses a piece of cardboard which has been pre-printed with Bare Paint in the shape of a jaunty octopus with a hat. Your job is to poke some holes and attach a couple of components using Bare Paint as a cold solder. This is a fairly straightforward kit and we'd expect you to have your octopus bliking (or changing color) in 30 minutes (including drying time). Have fun!

**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

Picture of Components
The parts that you'll need:

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!!

Is there a way to add a mini switch so you can change between on and off?

You could definitely incorporate a switch if you wanted to add this function! :)
If not, then wouldn't the light stay on until the battery runs out?

Yes! If you just left it on it should probably run for about 5 days though (because the LEDs use up so little poer).

However, one of the advantages of the paint is that it works as a cold solder so you could easily replace the battery if you want to keep using it! You can just pull it out, and pin a new one in!
