Can someone help me make a conductive (resisitive) paste? Answered

I need to make heater using about 6K resistance working off the mains vltage of 240V ac (i.e., about 40mA or 10Watts). Is it possible to make a resistive paste perhaps using graphite and some glue (pl suggest glue) for this application? I can then screen print the paste on the surface to be heated. The result needs to be consistent over about 200 pcs. Thanx in advance.

.  Wow! Typing "heating element paste" into Google worked much better than I imagined it would. A Q&D look at the results leads me to believe that "flexible heating element" might work, but I'm guessing you'll have to wade through a bunch of ribbon/thin film stuff.
