How do we make our graphics?...This is how.

We've had a few people asking how we made our graphics from the video so we thought we'd share with you some of our techniques.  You can use our Electric Paint in a variety of different ways, from just drawing lines with the pens to screen-printing, spraying or using stencils.

We also use stencils a lot as it's a quick way of testing something, and they can be easy to make out of paper or vinyl depending on how complex you want them. You can print out your design and cut it out, or draw it and cut it out. You can also buy stencil packs form art shops. We happen to have a vinyl and paper cutter from craft-robo which makes our lives much easier for making more complicated graphics but paper and some scissors or a craft knife can work great too.

Once you've got your graphics you just need to connect your Touch Board to them, We will be posting an update very soon showing how we attached the Touch Board to the various materials in our video as well as some other ideas. Thanks again for all the support and keep spreading the word.
