Let’s see how to make (art or a working) paper circuit. Paper circuits are common and easy to make. I used a basic laminator, cardstock, and reactive foil.
- Choose a basic circuit schematic or art design you like.
- Next you will need to print your work using a laser printer using black ink. The heat reactive foil technology will adhere to this type of ink.
- After you have printed your work on card stock you will now be able to send it through the laminator. Simply cut the foil to match the card stock.
- Place the foil paper on top of the card stock.
- Send both pieces through the laminator.
Optional (to make a working circuit try laying copper tape or conductive thread on top of printed traces) Conductive thread is an innovative thread which carries electricity and completes electrical circuits. Made from Stainless Steel fiber (SS316L). This thread will not pass through a sewing machine needle and must be used in the bobbin, or couched, or by hand.
