Step 5: Step 3 - Attaching your components

Take out your Bare Paint Pen and put a few drops of paint on top of the legs of the LED. You want to electrically connect the legs of the LED to the surface of the badge. Feel free to use as much as you'd like, but make sure that your blobs don't run together and touch or you'll short out the LED. Also put some blobs on the battery holes, this will make things easier later.

Notice that I was careful to make sure they weren't touching in the middle.
hi can you provide me detail for some discussion <br> <br>email: subrotradeindia@gmail.com
Is there a way to add a mini switch so you can change between on and off? <br>-Doctordv
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? <br> <br>-Doctordv
Yes! If you just left it on it should probably run for about 5 days though (because the LEDs use up so little poer). <br> <br>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!
