PAINT, PLUG, AND PLAY

Make three paper lamps with no tools, no programming, no special skills required. A great gift for anyone that needs more light in their life!

Transform a piece of paper into a beautiful lamp in three easy steps. Paint, plug, and play! Use our Electric Paint to create custom touch-sensitive buttons connected to our Light Up Board and then use our lampshades to bring your lamp to life. 

The Electric Paint Lamp Kit is easy to use and makes a perfect gift. The Touch, Dimmer, and Proximity lamps all show off different aspects of Electric Paint and the Light Up Board and are perfect for your home, office or workshop. 

PAINT - ELECTRIC PAINT BUTTONS

Use Electric Paint to create the controls for your lamp. Follow our templates or make your own shades!

COLOR CREATE AND CUSTOMISE!

Ready to take it to the next level? Great! The lamps in the Electric Paint Lamp Kit are made of paper which means they are easy to customise. Cut and color the included lamp shades or make your own.

Want to move beyond our templates? No problem, we'll be providing design files to make it easy to print and cut your own.

Do you have a Silhouette Cameo or similar cutting machine? If so you can really go crazy, making lamps out of any material you can think of! Back the project for updates on how we used our Silhouette Cameo to make the lamps for our video.

WHAT IS ELECTRIC PAINT?

Electric Paint is an electrically conductive paint! Non-toxic and water-based you can paint buttons, circuits or use as a conductive adhesive on almost anything including paper, plastic, and textiles. 

Electric Paint is electrically conductive which means it can carry a current to light an LED or be used as a sensor as it is in the Electric Paint Lamp Kit.

WHAT IS THE LIGHT UP BOARD?

The Light Up Board is the heart of the Electric Paint Lamp Kit. It works straight out of the box, is powered by USB and requires no programming or special tools. 

The Light Up Board is inspired by the numerous community projects which use our Electric Paint to control lighting projects

Risks and challenges

Kickstarter isn't easy! We fulfilled our Touch Board project to 1895 happy backers and have produced and shipped over 200,000 products, but we can still make mistakes, so as with all of our new product launches, we're approaching this campaign carefully.

The largest single risk for this project is the production of the Light Up Board. It is a brand new PCB and we have not yet completed a full-scale production run. Our pre-manufacturing runs have caught a number of issues (as they are designed to do), but there is still the risk that we'll have a design problem, components supply issue, or supplier failure. We mitigate these risks by working with our manufacturers to check the design at each stage, having replacement components on our BOM and having backup suppliers in our supply chain.

Production of our Electric Paint tubes, lamp templates and product packaging presents less of a risk as we are in series production with these (or very similar) items. Nonetheless, we strive to mitigate the potential risks in the manufacture of these items through planning, communication, and redundancy.
