When I got my Ipad, the first App I downloaded was Sketchbook Pro. I've been using it on wacom for work and loved it. I quickly realised that drawing with fingers on an Ipad was much more difficult, so I decided to design my own stylish stylus. It took me a while to understand what makes a stylus work correctly, so I hope you'll learn from my mistakes.
Here is how to make a fun and effective stylus for Ipad and Iphone.
Step 1: You Will Need
You will need :
A metalic paint brush (8mm diameter)
A standard eraser tip
Conductive foam (Used to hold electronic chips)
Step 2: Cut the Eraser
Cut the pointy part of the eraser. You will only need the cylinder part.
Step 3: Foam
Cut a corner of the conductive foam as shown.
Step 4: Insert
Insert the conductive foam inside the rubber tube.
Step 5: Assembly
Insert the back of the metalic paint brush on the other side of the rubber cylinder. Make sure you leave enough surface foam surface for it to be detected. Also make sure that the metal isn't sticking out of the foam or you will scratch your screen.
Step 6: Try
Try your new stylus and adjust it so it work perfectly for you. You will also realise that, (if you have an Ipad 2) you stylus can be magnetised by the frame and held in place while doing something else.
